Letter from the Editor
by Maureen James
The heart of our mission at Glass Patterns Quarterly will always be to provide inspiration and information to artists who create in the wonderful medium of glass.

Design by Robert Oddy
A 12" x 17-3/8" nautical panel for advanced artists. Drapery glass is used to create a billowing effect for the sails, and copper and brass wire are fashioned into realistic rigging. A plated glass section represents land veiled in a mist. Copper foil overlay also adds to the depth of the panel. This project is constructed using the copper foil technique.

Autumn Splendor
Design by Carol Giffen
A 1" x 1-1/2" fused pendant decorated with Dicro Slide and PMC+ Sheeting. Silver and copper inclusions appear as leaves for the tree design. A paper punch is used to cut the intricate shapes from PMC+ fine-silver clay for the various design elements.

Autumn Acorn Beads
Design by Lori Greenberg
Flameworked beads fashioned from Effetre rod, sprinkled enamel, and stringer dots. Tips are offered for mixing molten glass to achieve new colors. More depth and texture are added to the beads by encasing opaque glass with transparent glass and by making layered stringer.

All You Wanted to Know about Cutting Glass
by Alan Toy
The first of two parts of an expansive overview of glass cutting basics. The article teaches the proper techniques for cutting glass, tips for learning the feel of the correct amount of pressure to use when cutting, and the background behind why glass behaves as it does.

Mica Foil Dish
Design by Brenda Griffith
An 8-1/2" fused and slumped dish decorated with frit and mica powder. The use of the powder provides an inexpensive alternative for adding brilliance to fused pieces. Information is provided for making a sheet of mica from powder and incorporating it into the dish.

Quick & Easy Holiday Gifts
Design by Marianne Crivellaro
Twenty-four suncatchers and small panels featuring Halloween and Christmas designs. This collection is perfect for one-day or weekend projects and offers a wide variety of designs that are perfect for gift giving. These projects are constructed using the copper foil technique.

Twenty-Four Full-Size Bonus Patterns

Rooster Mosaic
Design by Melanie Churchill
An 11-1/2" x 15" free-form mosaic rooster. A rooster-shaped wooden base is used as the foundation for the project, and the bird’s feathers are created using pieces that have been nipped from glass strips. The design is sealed with colored grout.

Finishing Touch
Design by Elaine Fossler
A 7-1/4" x 9" free-form stained glass snowman fan light. Details are added with copper foil overlay. The design can be adapted for a large or small fan base. This project is constructed using the copper foil technique.

Beveled Santa Portrait

Design by Jennell Hogue
A 16" round portrait panel created using a Mika bevel kit. Detailing is added with copper wire, and the finish-solder color is selected to match the foil backing since it will show through the bevels. This project is constructed using the copper foil technique and is intended for crafters with an intermediate skill level.

Aloha in Glass—Hawaiian Quilt Designs

Design by Leslie Gibbs
A set of 5-1/2" x 5-12" fused and slumped glass quilt-block dish made from Wasser glass. These designs represent those used in the traditional quilt patterns of the Hawaiian Islands and are accomplished by using Flash glass with the design etched onto it, a base color for the bottom, and a clear top layer for sealing the dish and giving it a glossy finish.

Prancing Carousel Horses
Design by Marianne Crivellaro
Two 8" circular stained glass panels with free-form border. Careful placement of the pattern pieces on the glass helps to bring more realism to these panels, and optional jewels can be used to add more sparkle. These projects are constructed using the copper foil technique.
