From the Editor

Smiles, Everyone
by Delynn Ellis
Managing Editor Delynn Ellis reminds readers how rewarding it is to finish a piece of glass art after all of the cutting, fusing, soldering, grinding, and painting involved in its creation. It’s also good for glass enthusiasts to try crossover techniques so they can expand their creative abilities in glass.
