It’s Never Too Early
by Delynn Ellis
Managing Editor Delynn Ellis reminds readers that it’s never too early to plan projects for holiday gift giving with tutorials that include snowflake mobiles, fused dove ornaments, and mosaic suncatchers plus Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas themes. There are also tips for searching the GPQ website archives for additional holiday projects.

Just a Little Flurry
Design, Demonstration, and Text by Tamara Phillips
Photography by Stephanie Ulibarri
A mobile featuring four snowflakes created with clear diamond-shaped glass, colored cabochons, and filigree-shaped wire pieces. The glass is ground to remove any sharp edges and foiled before assembling the pieces and combining them to form the mobile. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Geometric Bird Feeder
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Lidia K. Anderson
A stained glass diamond-shaped bird feeder created with clear float glass plus a desired glass accent color. The glass edges are mirror ground, washed, dried, and assembled. The addition of wire loops and a chain allow for hanging the feeder. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Double the Holiday Cheer
An Introduction to Plating
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Chantal Paré
A 12" x 19" window featuring two panels of glass, with the front in sharp focus and the back panel seen through semitransparent glass, creating the illusion of depth. It’s appearance changes, depending on whether it’s viewed from the inside or outside. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Christmas Moose
Design by Christine Harris, Text by Darlene Welch
A 7‑1/2" x 10" free-form stained glass panel featuring an adorable moose wearing Santa’s red hat. Careful use of Light Brown Opal and Dark Amber Streaky glass colors helps to capture his furry winter coat and hallmark moose antlers. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Greenman Mosaic Suncatcher
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Dana Worley
A 7" square Greenman texture tile used to create a unique fused glass mosaic. The Greenman tile, which has fine frit added before the final firing to help the design stand out, is surrounded by patterned colored glass squares that are used to form the outer frame. Firing schedules are included.

Ghoul Cat
Design and Text by Leslie Gibbs
A stained glass free-form panel featuring a black cat with raised wings seated next to an eerie skull. A spiderweb created with 17-gauge wire, a glowing amber moon, and streaky burgundy glass complete this Halloween design. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Fall Splendor Multitechnique Accent Piece
Design and Fabrication by Alysa Phiel, Text and Photography by Jane McClarren
A set of leaf-shaped dishes created with hair spray, mica powder, glass paint, frit, and dichroic extract. The final product is slumped in a serving dish mold to create an interesting shape to use as a unique fall decor piece. Firing and slumping schedules are included.

Fused Dove Ornament
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Mary Harris
A quick and easy 3" x 3" ornament project that can be made with or without a kiln. Using 2 mm glass gives a less heavy, finer appearance to the dove. Gluing the wings to the dove’s body after fusing the project gives the piece a three-dimensional appearance. A firing schedule is included.

Not Quite Ripe
Design by Paned Expressions Studios, Text by Darlene Welch
An 18" x 27-1/2" stained glass panel featuring a cluster of grapes just before they are fully ripe. The broad grapevine leaves are beginning to show their fall colors, and curved black glass corner pieces add interest to the design. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Fused Glass Holiday Trees
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Jim Matthews
