From the Editor

Through the Eyes of the Artist
by Delynn Ellis
Managing Editor Delynn Ellis encourages readers to look at the projects offered in Glass Patterns Quarterly through their own eyes, letting their imaginations lead them to consider a fresh way of adapting the patterns to their own favorite glass colors and genres.

Snowy Owl
An Introduction to Leaded Glass
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Chantal Paré
A 19‑1/2" x 54‑1/2" leaded glass owl panel done in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright. The project is made from float glass plus elegant cord glass to enhance the vertical lines and delicate Waterglass to represent air bubbles and irregular textures. This project was constructed using leaded glass techniques.

Flying through the Clouds
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Cathy Claycomb
A free-form project that features flying geese painted on both sides of multiple pieces of head glass to give the appearance of the birds flying through the clouds. Tips are included for optimal three-dimensional display options plus ways to transfer patterns onto different types of head glass.

Midnight Watch
Design by Mary Harris, Text by Darlene Welch
A 20" x 28‑1/2" nature panel featuring a mule deer buck. Careful selection of glass colors and grains adds to the realism of the deer and his habitat, while the greenery in the foreground lends a three-dimensional effect to the design. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Design, Fabrication, and Text by Holly Stedman
Two spiral-shaped projects that represent extinct ammonites, which are reminiscent of the chambered nautilus. Bevels from stock snail shell clusters are used to add sparkle and interest to the projects, but regular stained glass could also be used instead. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Sea Horses
Little Fishes without Scales
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Leslie Gibbs
Photography by Jon Gibbs
A 7‑1/2" x 13" panel featuring a stunning sea horse and its underwater habitat. Iridescent glass for the fish and the panel background adds sparkle. Cabochons and faceted jewels are used for the bubbles to add interest to the scene. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Mad Etching Skills
Etched and Stacked Dichroic Running Fox
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Carmen Flores Tanis
Printable resist film is used to create this triple-layered etched design. The fox is copied onto the resist using a laser printer, then burnished onto the dichroic glass. Black and clear glass layers with etched trees are added, and the project is fire-polished in the kiln to finish.

Design by Mary Harris, Text by Darlene Welch
A 21"-diameter free-form circular stained glass panel that captures the spirit of the walleye. The fish breaks free from the border, which gives the panel a three-dimensional effect. Steel Blue Baroque glass provides the swirling appearance of the water. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Ocean Vases
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Janet Zambai
Fused, slumped vases created by painting glass with Unique Glass Colors from the company’s NT and Artisan lines. Swirls of color are added to clear and Krinkle glasses, and the watery look is completed by adding white medium frit. The vases are finished by slumping the glass over floral formers.

Design by Jean Beaulieu, Text by Darlene Welch
A 20" x 13" stained glass husky panel that perfectly captures the dog’s regal nature. Intricate cuts make the project best suited for the intermediate or advanced artist. The eye and mouth details could be added with black glass paint. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Growing Good Habits for Successful Kiln Work
by Dennis Brady
A checklist for good working habits that help warm glass artists create optimal projects. The good habit checklist includes suggestions for triple-checking the firing schedule, keeping a detailed kiln log, keeping kiln lids clean, planning ahead, and remembering that each kiln fires a little differently.

Kaleidoscopes with a New Twist
by Kylie McGowan
Custom-built stained glass kaleidoscopes can now be created using lazy Susan bearings. Assorted pedestals can include crystals, fossils, wood, and stone. Most have dual stained glass wheels plus unusually ample viewing ports of up to six inches wide, which allows for comfortable viewing with both eyes.

Twin Koi
Design by Wesley R. Wong, Text by Delynn Ellis
An 18" x 18" stained glass panel featuring bright, colorful koi fish. The use of opalescent glass provides the variegated colors found in the koi’s environment. Artists can also translate the pattern and the glass seamlessly into a mosaic piece. This project was constructed using the copper foil techniques.

Snowflake Texture Bowl
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Kelly McHugh
A fused and slumped snowflake bowl created using the DT28 mold from Creative Paradise. The mold can be filled with many combinations of frit colors for a personalized look that will fit any decor. The mold is then fired, and the resulting disk is slumped to form the bowl shape.

Tiger in Your Face
Design by Paned Expressions Studios, Text by Darlene Welch
An 18" x 13‑1/2" stained glass panel featuring the gaze of a Bengal tiger. Swirls of orange and white in the tiger’s stripes provide a realistic textured look. Smaller details in the cat’s eyes can be added using black glass paint. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

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.

Looking Back
Design by Mary Harris, Text by Delynn Ellis
An 18" x 15" stained glass panel that features the interesting coloring found in dapple gray horses. Mottled glass, with its multicolored rings, works perfectly for this adaption. Baroque glass is used to add realism to the horse’s tousled mane. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
