From the Editor

Now in Season
by Delynn Ellis

Managing Editor Delynn Ellis reminds readers that glass artists have long embraced the subject of wildlife in panels and projects. The Winter 2013 issue of Glass Patterns Quarterly is dedicated to providing the best in wildlife patterns plus techniques for making the subjects come to life.


Big Horn Ram-The Key to Glass Selection
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Michelle Carlson

A 16‑1/2" x 16‑1/2" stained glass panel created from sheet glass that features variegated colors to give the sheep realistic coloring. The eyes are cut from fused layers of black, white, and clear glass to give them an added sparkle. Tips are included for fusing the eyes and for selecting the glass pieces. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.


Bird of Happiness-An Introduction to Glass Painting
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Peter McGrain

Peter McGrain shares techniques for painting glass using his patented Vitri-Fusáille® method that combines the simple processes of fusing flat glass with fundamental traditional glass painting techniques. This beginner project features a bluebird in flight that is painted in layers using traditional glass stainer colors and fused on a glass tile, a technique that allows artists to create a very detailed and specific image in glass.


Northern Lights-Creating the Illusion
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Rosalind Stanton

Techniques for using frit and clear Tekta to re-create the appearance of the aurora borealis, also known as the Northern Lights. After drawing the main design lines onto the clear glass, sifters are used to add lines and layers of colored frits. The moon and icebergs are added with nipped glass and detailed using glass powder. Kiln schedules are included for this fused glass project.


Swamp Cat-The Florida Panther
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Leslie Gibbs
Photography by Jon Gibbs

A 14" x 11" stained glass panel featuring the Florida panther resting deep within a blue-green landscape of swamp forest, pinelands, and hardwood hammocks. Copper U-channel framing is used to harmonize with the orange/yellow of the sky. Interest is added to the design by letting the tip of the panther’s tail extend beyond the bottom border of the panel. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.


Mama Panda and Cub Hot Mosaic
Design, Fabrication, Text, and Photography by Wesley R. Wong

A 12" x 11" contemporary hot mosaic panel that combines fused glass with traditional mosaic techniques. The panda mother and baby plus the bamboo stalks are cut, assembled, and fused then attached to a Wedi board substrate. The design background is then filled in with irregular shaped pieces of glass. Sanded grout is applied to the panel to finish the mosaic sections of the panel.


Falcon
Design by Jean Beaulieu, Text by Darlene Welch

A 24" x 24" stained glass panel featuring a falcon in flight. Careful selection of glass colors, especially for the bird’s wing and tail feathers, lend a very realistic, feathery appearance to the design. Multiple interlocking square and circular geometric borders provide a beautiful finish to the panel. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.


16-Page Full-Size Pattern Section


Lock and Key Reactive Glass Keepsake Box
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Tanya Veit

A 6‑1/4" x 6‑1/4" fused tile insert for a wooden box top. The background design is created with paint that is fired onto Dense White glass, then layered with Tekta glass and fused together. The foreground design is added with “Branches and Birds” decals from AAE Glass before the final firing.


Moose
Design by Mary Harris, Text by Delynn Ellis

An 18" x 24" stained glass panel featuring a bull moose from the True-to-Life pattern series by Mary Harris. The moose stands against a background of Dark Green/Dark Amber/Opal glass that provides a suggestion of the animal’s forest habitat. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.


Desert Coyote Fused Panel
Design and Fabrication by Alysa Phiel, Text and Photography by Jane McClarren
A 10" x 14" multimedia fused panel with free-form border depicting a coyote in his Arizona desert habitat. Frit is used to decorate the panel’s background. Stringers are then pulled for the vegetation, and cacti are cut from sheet glass, then decorated with frit and fired. The photocopied coyote art is used to create a decal that is added to the glass. The remaining foreground pieces are nipped from glass, and details are painted on before the final assembly and firing.


Wood Ducks
Design by Paned Expressions Studios, Text by Darlene Welch

A 24" x 24" stained glass panel that celebrates the beautiful iridescence of the male wood duck as he swims along with his mate. All of the glass for this panel, with the exception of the water, can be cut from scrap. The birds’ eyes can be created using glass or added with glass paint. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.


What’s New
by Darlene Welch

Information on the latest in books and patterns plus new glass and tools for hot, warm, and cold glass artists and hobbyists. This is the perfect place to keep up with the innovations that will make working in glass easier and more enjoyable.


Rooster
Design by Paned Expressions Studios, Text by Darlene Welch

A 24" x 24" stained glass panel with a vibrantly colored rooster crowing to the morning. Realism is added to the design through the careful use of glass colors and grain direction, especially for the fence and background landscape. The ever vigilant eye of the bird can created with black glass or black paint. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.


Dragonfly Fireplace Screen
Design by Paned Expressions Studios, Text by Delynn Ellis

A 61" x 32" three-panel fireplace screen that is perfect for shielding occupants of a room from flames and flying embers, serving as both a decorative and functional piece of glass art. The background colors could easily be changed to fit the color scheme of any decor. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
