And the Tortoise Takes the Lead—Adding Three-Dimensional Elements to Your Project
Design by Mark Waterbury
A 20"x 28" panel landscape that includes the tortoise and hair from fairytale land racing to the finish. Fluffy clouds and a vibrant blue sky float above grassy knolls and a sandy path, while yellow flowers wave in the breeze on long, slender, leafy stems. This project is constructed with copper foil, but lead came could also be used. Pattern in back issue can be enlarged, or full-size pattern #85 is available from Glass Patterns Quarterly.

Calla Lily—Using Your Background Glass Effectively
Design by LaNaya Carpenter
A 16"x 18" diamond-shaped panel with three white calla lilies and intertwining stalks surrounded by rectangles forming a border of dark green and yellow. The flowers are set against a background of clear/leaf green/yellow fracture glass. This project is constructed with copper foil.

Mmm…Mmm…Lemonade—Building Accents with Glass and Wire Overlay

This project is constructed with copper foil.

Gifts for All Occasions—Fused Clear and Gold Bowl
Design by Darlene Johnson and Judy Lee
An easy-to-make fused and slumped clear glass bowl made from mosaic glass frit and medium clear frit. The size of the mold that the bowl is slumped into determines its size. Instructions for the construction of this project are given in this article. No pattern is required for this project.

Beginner Iris

Elegance Shade—Building a Stained Glass Ceiling Light

Design by Linda Holmes A flat-dome, geometric ceiling shade in blue violet, and blue/pink opal. The shade’s darker border highlights the lighter central portion. No special mold is required, and its simplicity makes it a good project for artists new to making lamps.

Concentration—Using a Band Saw in Glass Projects
Design by Paned Expressions Studios
A panel spotlighting the curiosity of two Siamese cats seen from the back, their dark ears perked up and their tails curling onto the dark outer border.
