About the Author


Crafting stained glass has been Neile Cooper's job and passion for over 20 years. Based in Sparta, New Jersey, USA, she has created everything from jewelry and tiny boxes to large-scale win­dow installations. In 2015 Neile began creating her stained glass cabin in the woods, a small sanctuary clad entirely in reclaimed window frames filled with her stained glass. She is an experienced educator and gives regular tutorials and workshops.

A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
