1000 Glass Beads

One of my favorite new books -- 1000 Glass Beads: Innovation & Imagination in Contemporary Glass Beadmaking (by Valerie Van Arsdale Shrader and Cathy Finegan) -- has page after gorgeous full color page of some of the finest lampworking you'll see anywhere.

Artists and art lovers of all kind -- and glass lovers in particular -- can feast on banquet of color, texture and light. From René Roberts wonderfully textured Stonework Series (page 146) to Kimberly Jo Affleck's elegant Heartwood bead (page 263) to Patty Walton's incredibly detailed Butterfly Garden bead (page 349) there are hundreds of oooohs and ahhhhs in this great book.
