The Cat's Meow—Detailing with Glass Paint
Design by Mark Waterbury
A 21-7/8"x 33-7/8" rectangular landscape panel constructed with copper foil that includes a fabulous cat sunning itself on a bench under a large tree. A swirling brown and white mix adds texture to the tree in the foreground, and the dark brown of the other trees suggests a depth to the picture. This project is better suited for glass artists who have some experience under their belts. Pattern in back issue can be enlarged, or full-size pattern #75 is available from Glass Patterns Quarterly.

Bamboo Bonanza—Lamplight Through the Branches
Design by H. L. Worden
A 16" dome-shaped, plant-covered shade created with H.L. Worden's Bamboo T Full-Form™ design and mold. Overlapping dark green bamboo leaves cover the top of the shade and spill down onto the bottom, which is covered with bamboo stalks resting on a yellowish green background. Pattern is available in the kit.

Beginner's Workbench—White Socks at Home Games

Design by Dan Donovan
A 14-1/2"x 14" rectangular landscape panel constructed with copper foil depicting a brilliant sunset over the water. In the foreground are two pairs of socked feet, propped up on the windowsill, no doubt attached to a couple enjoying the beautiful view. This freeform panel is created with mostly easy-to-cut shapes, making it a good one for beginners.

The Dance of the Golden Sea Fans—A Panel with a Twist – Wire Overlay
Design by Jillian Sawyer
A 10-1/4"x 14" freeform mermaid panel constructed with copper foil. This sea creature of folklore swims about with two large orange sea fans that use twisted wire overlay to help define their details.

Swellican!—Pelican on a Glassy Sea
Design by Mark Waterbury
A 15" round bird panel depicting a pelican resting on calm waters that display steel blue waves and an orange/opal reflection of the sky. The porthole-shaped frame adds a nice touch. This project is constructed with copper foil, but lead came could also be used.

Flower Power
Design by Mark Waterbury
A 7-1/4"x 9-1/4" freeform floral suncatcher constructed with copper foil and loaded with large colorful flowers nestled against a black background. Centers of yellow and white complete the picture. There are eighty pieces to cut, which requires a little patience, but the shapes of the pieces are not difficult.

Welcome Home—Lights to Live By

Design by Old California Lantern Co.
A 5" x 7" x 7" panel lamp shade or a 3" x 6" hexagonal geometric porch lamp. The panel lamp reminds us of a night sky with the moon gleaming through the clouds. The hexagonal lamp offers light sea foam green strips accented with darker green diamond shapes near the bottom. These projects are constructed with copper foil and designed to fit Old California lamp kits.

A Step in the Right Direction

Design by L&L Artistic Ventures, Inc.
A 15-1/4" round mosaic stepping stone navigational compass with compass points jutting out past the circle's edge. The compass arms of light blue swirled with red and light opal, as well as small diamond shapes of light and medium blue, stand against the brown background.
