Chinese Lantern
Design by Chantal Paré
A 10-1/2"x 11" vertical three-tiered lampshade fashioned after the Chinese paper lanterns that are so popular in Zen and contemporary decor. The vertical nature of this design is rather unique and requires reinforcement with metal rods or copper wire for stability. Floor or hanging lamps can be made by adding one or two more tiers. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Something Fishy
Design by Pam Duggar
Instructions for making hollow, flameworked fish beads from glass rods and powdered glass. These Lyretail Wrasse variety fish, which have realistic fins, tails, and eyes for interesting detail, were created at the torch using vibrant tropical colors.

Dragonfly

Design by Karen Stephenson
A 10" x 9" free-form suncatcher with dragonfly and flowers floating on a pool of vivid blue water. The three white blooms stand out in contrast to the dark body of the dragonfly. Green glass used for the wings has a texture that is suggestive of the veining found in nature. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Castles in the Sand
Design by Leslie Gibbs
An 18" x 12" seashore panel that will take you back to every bright summer day you ever spent at the beach. Triple turrets fortify this sandcastle, which rests amidst seashells, a child’s blue pail, and a red shovel. The aqua tide approaches from the background and will soon be advancing to sweep the castle away. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Sunflower Clock
Design by Takaaki Tsuchiya
A 10-1/2" x 13" free-form floral clock with large, perky sunflowers towering above a round clock face that is nestled among the flowers’ vibrant, green leaves. The clock would make a perfect accent piece for the kitchen, sun room, or almost anyplace in your home. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Three-Dimensional Flower
Design by Jeff Littlejohn
A 4" x 8" free-form floral suncatcher from a Flight into Fantasy kit by Strohm’s. Lots of different flower designs can be crafted with these pewter-cast pieces using the rounded- or pointed-petal patterns that are included or by creating your own pattern. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Old Sol in Fused Glass
Design by Mark Waterbury
A 5" round suncatcher with fused, stylized sun face. The brilliant yellow, orange, and red colors of this smiling face surrounded by its pointed corona stand out in bright relief against a light blue background. Three layers of glass are fused together to form this project, which can be fired flat or slumped into a plate.

16-Page Pullout Pattern Section

Catnap
Design by Leslie Gibbs
A 14" round floral panel with sleeping gray-and-white cat resting beneath a canopy of sunflowers. The pastel green background provides a tranquil backdrop for our feline friend. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Etch Your Way to a Beautiful Door!

Design by Norm and Ruth Dobbins and Damian Romero
A 24-1/2" x 48-1/4" etched door insert with scrolled border and floral centerpiece. Laminated glass that was cut by a local glass shop is used for security, and reverse abrasive blasting offers a design that provides privacy while still showing off the beautiful floral and geometric design. The pattern in the issue can be enlarged, or full-size pattern #126 can be ordered from Glass Patterns Quarterly.

Lovely, Lively Clematis
Design by Karen Stephenson
A 5" x 11" free-form suncatcher with flower-covered garden trowel. A large, blue clematis bloom rests against the spade portion of the trowel while its stem and leaves continue up the tool’s handle. Realistic tendrils can be made with the use of copper wire details. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Nautical Mosaic Mirror
Design by Ann Novotney and Knabley
An 18" x 20" mosaic-framed mirror with precut Mary star, pelican, and anchor accents. Blue, white, and other colors are used to fill in the mosaic design and are a great way to make use of scraps of glass that have been collecting in your shop. DiamondCrete finishes off this project. The pattern in the issue can be enlarged, or full-size pattern #125 can be ordered from Glass Patterns Quarterly.

Colorflies
Design by Karen Stephenson
A 12" x 15" trio of free-form, interconnected butterfly suncatchers in graduated sizes. They fly in tandem, connected by various gauges of copper wire, which is also put to good use to create antennae and to add strength to the designs. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
