Kay Bain Weiner’s passion for painting in oils, watercolors, and acrylics throughout the years has enhanced her appreciation of painting on glass with enamels. Kay first began glass enameling 38 years ago when she studied in New York under the guidance of world-famous glass enamelist Maurice Heaton. Her long friendship with Peggy Karr, another renowned glass enamelist, inspired her to write her 1996 book, Glass Enameling. A noted designer, Kay has worked in stained, fused, and enameled glass for many years and has undertaken numerous commissions for private residences and public buildings.

Then she spends another third on profiles and pictures of other artists' works. This part wouldn't be so bad except that the profiles do not describe the techniques these artists used at all, and there's a distinct vibe that she's just promoting her buddies in the glass world.
