Letter from the Editor
by Maureen James
When a community got its artists together to plan a tour of studios, the sales and the opportunity for heightened public awareness were phenomenal.

Simple Lead Panel—An Introduction to Stained Glass
Design by Marianne Crivellaro
A 7-1/2" x 10" beginner panel. An expanded how-to section illustrated in full-color covers each step of construction. Also included are a list of tools and materials needed for working in leaded glass plus helpful hints on the best ways to use them. This project is constructed using lead.

Etched Dichroic Pendant
Design by Carol Giffin
A 1" x 1-1/2" fused slide pendant with stenciled and etched design. The design is transferred to dichroic glass with Rub'N'Etch stencils, and precut dichroic shapes are used to further enhance the pendant. Tips are included for the proper cleaning and use of the etching creme.

Playing Hands
Design by Robert Oddy
A 9-1/4" x 9-1/4" stained glass panel. This advanced panel includes a small plated section to darken the colors and give the impression of shadows. A careful selection of glass colors also helps to create the illusion of light and shadow, and copper foil overlay applied to the reverse side provides deeper shading. This project is constructed using the copper foil technique.

Hatitude
Design by Leslie Gibbs
A set of 6"-wide suncatchers. Layers of Wasser glass are fused together, and decorations are then added and fused onto the hat. Instructions are included for making and attaching suspension loops to the project.

Olive and Amethyst Lamp
A 16" x 16" stained glass lampshade designed in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright. The clean lines of this southwestern geometric design make it easy to fit the glass colors to any color scheme. This project is constructed using the copper foil technique.

White-Tailed Deer

Design by Bettye Phillips
A 22-1/8" x 22-1/8" stained glass panel. The stillness of snow-laden woods in winter is captured in this panel through the careful selection of glass and the simple lines of the design. The pattern in this issue can be enlarged, or full-sized pattern #139 may be purchased from Glass Patterns Quarterly. This project is constructed using the copper foil technique.

Egrets
Design by Mark Waterbury
A 24" x 36-1/2" stained glass panel. Careful glass selection is the key to capturing this scene of birds flying just ahead of a magnificent sunset and its reflection. The distinctive border effect was created using copper foil overlay and brass rods. The smaller, more intricate pieces required for the wings of the birds make this project, which is constructed using the copper foil technique, more appropriate for intermediate to advanced crafters. The pattern in this issue can be enlarged, or full-sized pattern #141 may be purchased from Glass Patterns Quarterly.

Weekend Workshop

Designs by Marianne Crivellaro
A collection of quick and easy bonus projects. These suncatchers and small panels cover a wide range of subjects from florals, girls, and butterflies to teddy bears and Celtic crosses. The projects are constructed using lead and copper foil techniques.

Twenty-Five Bonus Patterns

Tiger-Striped Beads

Design by Jeri L. Warhaftig
Instructions for creating twisties and using them to decorate flameworked beads. This is a good project for beginning torchworkers, since the twisties don’t have to be perfect to use on the tiger beads. Steps are also included for encasing the beads and using various tools such as a grooved marver to create variations in the designs.

How to Silver Glass—The Mirror Bath Technique
Design by Sarah King
Instructions and tips for using tools and silvering kits from AngelGilding.com to coat glass bevels with silver. This technique is a good choice for mirroring irregular glass pieces and bevels. The project is not difficult but requires patience and precision.

Stained Glass Bottle Stopper Sculpture
Design by Geneva Perkins
Instructions for decorating wine bottle stoppers. Stained glass leaves and fruit are incorporated by attaching them to copper or brass wire using copper foil techniques. The design is further enhanced with black patina plus brass or copper darkener.

Flowering Vines

Design by Mark Waterbury
A 17" x 23-1/8" stained glass panel. The simple elegance of this project would fit into most any decor, and the colors can easily be changed as desired. The vines are made using wide solder lines enhanced with black patina. For a more personalized look, jewels could be added to the flower centers, or details could be added to the flowers and leaves using glass paint. The pattern in this issue can be enlarged, or full-sized pattern #140 may be purchased from Glass Patterns Quarterly. This project is constructed using the copper foil technique.

Beta Vulgaris
Design by Mark Waterbury
A 11" x 14-1/2" stained glass panel. The rich colors chosen for the beet, the use of different glasses plus painted detailing for the leaves, and the addition of copper foil overlay and copper wire for the root system add realism to this project, which is constructed using the copper foil technique.
