MEDIA REVIEWS

A thorough, enthusiastic guide to the art, full of beautiful projects, helpful advice, and inspiring thoughts from working stained glass artists - Foreword

Novices can expect all the familiar faces of how-to books: tools and supplies, an examination of materials, and clear directions on finishing, all well illustrated with quality color photographs. - Booklist

Neile’s warm and supportive approach comes across as she shares the vision behind the creation of her own sanctuary – a cabin in her garden that she is lovingly decorating with reclaimed window frames and stained glass designs based on her love of the natural world. [...] Kicking Glass offers comprehensive training and a liberal helping of motivation through beautiful imagery and practical designs to try. - Contemporary Glass Society

When I’m ready to dip my toes, Kicking Glass by Neile Cooper is where I’ll begin exploring this gorgeous hobby. Cooper’s thorough tome walks beginners through setting up a space, picking out supplies, and basic techniques required for creating stained glass. - The Mercury

The photography is stellar with lushly colorful clear pictures and tutorial explanations. The author provides project lists with tools and supplies and step by step instructions. The book feels like a small, well organized workshop with a well spoken and competent teacher. The projects are varied and attractive and are a mix of more traditional looking and modern. - Nonstop Reader

The book is full of beautiful, full colour illustrations, and instructions are easy to follow, if not easy to master. This is great guide for anyone considering starting in the hobby. - Novel Obsession
