Limited Print Edition
For all you bibliophiles: I've arranged for a limited print run of the Color Archive from a custom art and photography book printer in San Francisco. This is a beautiful, high quality softcover edition of the Color Archive, printed in vibrant full color on heavy photo stock with a glossy UV-laminated cover. Size: 8-1/2" by 11"; 152 pages. There are only a limited number of copies available, and I don't know how long they will last, so if you want to be sure of getting a copy I recommend placing your order sooner rather than later.
Bluff Road Art Glass Color Archive, 2000-2010
Sorry -- sold out.
The Bluff Road Art Glass Color Archive, 2000-2010 is a complete color reference on my most popular lampwork designs of the past decade. Featuring 152 pages and 172 bead designs, with over 200 full color photographs, the Color Archive is not a how-to or a step-by-step tutorial, but rather, an elegantly presented "cookbook" of glass recipes — an invaluable reference compiling for the first time the complete details on exactly which colors and brands of glass were used to create my best-selling and most talked-about bead designs. This full-color book in softcover format contains thorough indexes by manufacturer/glass color and also by bead name, which will allow you to quickly find inspiring examples of what you can do with a given color, or look up the color recipes for your favorite designs. Also included are working tips on my favorite glasses, technical notes for some of the more difficult designs, and a compilation of helpful color-related resources. Whether you're looking for inspiration to wake up your muse and tips on how to combine colors for maximum impact, or you just love bead-related eye candy, this gorgeous, lovingly prepared reference is a must-have for the lampworker who is serious about color.
