Bel Air Gazebo—Growing a Decorative, Diminutive Greenhouse
Design by Randy Wardell
A 10" x 14" six-sided, open gazebo planter in shades of blue. This small, geometric planter is perfect for placing on a wide windowsill, end table, or mantle and is constructed with black-back copper foil. Small cobalt blue nuggets are used for added detail.

An Echo of Light—Repeat Pattern in a Lamp and Box Set
Design by Mark Waterbury
A 16" cone lamp shade and matching 9" x 6" panel box top. The 8-repeat pattern of the lamp emits light through vertical bands in a pearly blend of pink, blue, and white, while geometric leaf-shaped accents of blue-gray scroll along the bottom of the shade. The glass top of the companion oak box also displays this same accent piece. The lamp is created with the use of Worden’s Magic Strips® and Lamp Designing Grid and is constructed using the copper foil technique.

Fused Glass Plant Chimes—Giving Your House Plants Some Music to Grow By
Design by Darlene Johnson and Judy Lee
A 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" freeform frog or 5-1/2" x 3-1/2" dragonfly supporting wind chimes made of fractures, streamers, and stringers. Iridescent, dichroic, and cathedral glasses in shades of green and black are used in the frog and dragonfly toppers. Decorative beads add detail to these chimes. All glasses used in this project must be fusing compatible.

There’s No Place Like Home—Building and Detailing a Birdhouse Panel
Design by Karen Stephenson
An 11" x 11" freeform bluebird panel detailed with wire. Two bluebirds light in front of their home atop tendrils and trailing leaves. The leaves can be given a three-dimensional look by raising them with artist’s wax during construction. Grain patterns of the glass are used to convey different textures of the subjects. The project is constructed using the copper foil technique.

Step Lively—Combining Glass and Concrete for a Cheery Stone
Design by Dave Burnett
A 16" hexagonal mosaic stepping-stone with heart-shaped flowers, daisies, and butterflies. The stone uses a Studio One Kwik Parts kit. Interest is added by placing some of the leaf pieces around the medallion. The stone is constructed with the use of DiamondCRETE™, and suggestions are given on swirling concrete colors for special effects.

Lift Off

Design by Leslie Gibbs A 20" round panel depicting a majestic white egret with large wings extended in flight. This challenging panel contains 125 glass pieces for the bird alone, but it could be scaled to a larger size, making the glass pieces larger and easier to handle. The project was constructed using the copper foil technique, and copper foil overlay adds detailing. This pattern can be enlarged, or full-size pattern #103 is available from Glass Patterns Quarterly.

Sunflower—Breaking Boundaries in a Panel
Design by Mark Waterbury
A 14" x 16" freeform panel with a heavy-headed sunflower bowing gracefully above its stalk and large green leaves. The piece is detailed in sheet foil overlay, and interest is added to the panel by letting parts of the sunflower and leaves extend beyond the border. Various textures are suggested through the careful selection of glass. This project is constructed using the copper foil technique.

Wondrous Wings—Building a Butterfly in Summer’s Soft Colors
Design by Connie Clough Eaton
A 12" round butterfly panel built in pastel shades of blue, green, and yellow. The butterfly, which flies above ribbons of green, is created with contrasting vivid opalescent colors in shades of caramel, orange, and dark amber. This panel is perfect for displaying in a garden and is constructed using the copper foil technique.

Southern Magnolia
Design by Elizabeth Towns
A 20" x 28" panel with vivid green leaves and large white and pale pink blossoms resting against a misty, blended background of green, amber, and opal. Some of the leaves and stems extend into the green border. For crafters of at least intermediate-level skills, a challenge can be added to the piece by selecting a well-mixed piece of glass with a consistent grain for the background. This project is constructed using the copper foil technique but could also be constructed with lead channel. The pattern in this issue can be enlarged.

Tulip Panel—Beginner Lead Project
Design by Mark Waterbury
An 8" x 10" beginner panel featuring tips for working with lead. A single red tulip rises above dark green leaves and stands in relief against a background of sky blue. The piece is surrounded by a green and white border. This project is constructed with lead H-channel.

Imagination Unbridled—Choosing the Right Glass for a Lighter-Than-Air Feeling

Design by Mark Waterbury
An 18-1/8" x 24-1/8" panel showing the head, legs, and chest of a magnificent unicorn as it breaks through billowy clouds. The use of translucent and semitranslucent glasses gives the piece an airy, wispy quality. This project is constructed using the copper foil technique and can also be constructed with lead channel. The pattern in this issue can be enlarged, or full-size pattern # 101 is available from Glass Patterns Quarterly.
