Summary

The go-to reference that covers the basics of setting up a studio, three popular techniques for creating glass art, and projects that will challenge you. 
 
The Glass Artist's Studio Handbook offers readers a comprehensive and accessible guide to not only the nuts and bolts of this perennially popular craft but insight into the artisan crafter's lifestyle. Our book offers much, much more than "just projects"—it will fast become the definitive "bible" for all home crafters.  
 
Many glass art how-to books on the market provide precise patterns and instructions for projects that are fairly traditional in technique, materials and style. Completing a project from those books leaves you with a piece that is ideally identical to what the author created—and to what every other student using the book created. Many books are strong in the basics but do not do enough to challenge us to stretch our imagination, experiment with new styles, and explore materials. Readers want creative challenge and stimulation, and Quarry delivers with this complete glass art curriculum.
Available since: 07/01/2011.
Print length: 178 pages.

    A painting by Rembrandt is a living entity that exists according to its own laws, which reflects the multiplicity of the thoughts and emotions in the painter’s mind. Men and their mental condition: that is the fundamental issue the artist tries to solve throughout his life. Tormented by family problems, he took shelter in painting, which became even better as things got worse, as if depicted by a visionary. Hiding his anxiety in the optimism of his themes and in the strength of dark colours, he was ultimately victorious.

    Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist was a wildly successful, innovative, and hilarious show on Comedy Central that ran for six seasons.  In it, Jonathan Katz performed as the therapist to a host of big name comics coming to terms with their neuroses.  The amazing cast also included Laura Silverman and Jon Benjamin as regulars, and the show popularized the Squigglevision animation style.  In January of 2008, a live version of Dr. Katz was staged with the original lineup and featured BJ Novak, Eugene Mirman, and Andy Kindler as the guest star patients. This is the result.
