Stolen Moments
by Delynn Ellis
Managing Editor Delynn Ellis reminds readers that finding large blocks of time for creative pursuits can be difficult. A little planning, however, can make it possible to get all of those seasonal decor and gift projects ready in plenty of time to enjoy the holidays.

Agate Lantern
An Introduction to Stained Glass
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Jared Provencher
Stained glass panels decorated with agate slices, then used as replacement panels in purchased lanterns. The original lantern panels make perfect patterns for cutting the new panels from two different styles of clear textured art glass. Agate slices are set in the center of each panel. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Falling Leaves
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Laura Williams
Photography by Hank Williams
An 8" x 16" stained glass panel featuring the reds, oranges, and yellows of fall leaves. The panel is assembled inside a jig to ensure square corners. U-channel zinc is used to finish the outer edge of the piece. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Heirloom Lace Bethlehem Star
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Lidia K. Anderson
Free-form star ornaments created by pressing lace between two pieces of clear glass and assembling them in a three-dimensional star shape. The project is perfect for showcasing lace from heirlooms such as wedding dresses, but new lace will also work. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Oktoberfest
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Chantal Paré
A traditional 16‑3/4" x 13‑1/2" painted stained glass project celebrating a popular fall festival, Octoberfest. Stencil black is used to add details to the glass pieces. After assembly and soldering, zinc U-channel is applied as a finish for the panel’s edge. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Sir Sooty Kat
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Leslie Gibbs
Photography by Jon Gibbs
A 7" round fused glass portrait of a black cat wearing his jaunty bow tie and black hat. Pieces for the center design are fused and assembled, details are painted on, and the cat is fused onto the base glass. H- and U-lead came are used to add the stained glass border pieces.

Cobweb Eddy
Design, Fabrication, and Text by David Kennedy
A 16‑3/4"-diameter stained glass panel featuring a skeleton’s head, his dapper black top hat, and cobwebs decorated with glass globs. C- or U-channel lead came is used to finish the panel’s edge after adding the orange and black glass border. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Mosaic Star and Snowflake Ornaments
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Cherie Bosela
A set of mosaic Christmas ornaments created with purchased wooden shapes. White paint is applied as a base and hooks are attached before covering the shapes with glue. Various styles of glass beads and millefiori slices are then used to create the designs on the wood shapes.

16-Page Full-Size Pattern Section

Clearly Christmas
Design by Kevin Thornhill, Text by Delynn Ellis
An 18" x 18" stained glass panel featuring a geometric design that’s reminiscent of Christmas ornaments on a string. A circular design could also be created using the inner circle as a guide. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Frit Slurry Bell Mushroom
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Kelley Mc Hugh
Fused, molded mushroom caps made with frit slurry that is spooned onto a clear sheet glass base. The slurry and base are fired to a full fuse, then draped on a bell mushroom mold. Adding a butt splice allows for attaching the mushroom to copper tubing before inserting it in an arrangement.

Snowman Candle Cover
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Mary Terziani
A 6" x 12" painted, fused and slumped candle cover. Powdered frit enhances the background glass, and design details are painted on the top layer of glass before fusing the layers together. Foreground snowmen and tree branches are added, and the whole piece is slumped in a wave mold to complete the cover.

Square Panel Bevel Magic
Design by Randolph Raum, Text by Darlene Welch
A 36" x 36" stained glass design featuring carefully matched glass grain reminiscent of the custom woodwork found in older homes. The geometric figures found in the center and outer border of the design are created with several tile and corner bevel sets. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Santa Frog
Design by Paned Expressions Studios, Text by Delynn Ellis
An 8" x 6‑1/2" free-form suncatcher featuring a happy frog ready for Christmas in his colorful Santa hat. In addition to suncatchers, the frog could make a great Christmas ornament by soldering a hook and some chain onto the back. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Regal Aspen Tower and Stand
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Lisa Vogt
A fused and slumped curved glass tower and stand decorated with leaves and branches. The base layer contains several pieces of clear glass, while the design layer, leaves, and branches are cut from dichroic glass. All of the layers are fired to a full fuse, then slumped using a sconce mold.

Happy Halloween
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Margot Clark
An 11" round design featuring a skeleton head and hands, spider and spider web, and the message “Happy Halloween.” The pattern is transferred onto 6 mm float glass. Areas of the design are then filled in with various colors of glass paint, and shading is added before fusing the design to complete the project.

Victorian Angel
Design by Mary Harris, Text by Darlene Welch
An 18"-tall free-form stained glass Victorian style angel design. Careful selection of the glass color and grain adds realism and depth to the piece. Tracing black is used to add details to the eyes and fingers, and copper wire strings complete the guitar. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
