Design, Fabrication, and Text by Julie Feigum
Three 3" x 10" glass bevels joined to form a pyramid. The pyramid is then closed after filling it with sand and shells to create a beach vacation keepsake display. Tips are included for finishing the seams with decorative solder. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Painted Glass Quilt
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Chantal Paré
Painted glass squares are fused and soldered together to form a quilt-style panel. The project is framed with U-zinc came, and copper wire hooks are made from pre-tinned 14‑gauge copper wire. Techniques for stamping geometric designs on the squares are included. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Coneflower Bluff
Design by Kevin Thornhill, Text by Delynn Ellis
A 20" x 30" stained glass flower panel featuring a grouping of graceful coneflowers. A striking mottled glass is used for both the sky and sea, making the water appear to pick up nature’s reflection of a multicolored sky. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

16-Page Full-Size Pattern Section

Fishy Tail
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Helen Dyne
A 9" x 5" painted fish float glass panel. The fish is colored with enamel paints. Each layer of paint is fired separately before combining the glass layers. Mica powder adds luster to the fish. Firing schedules are included for setting colors and fusing the layers of float glass together.

Style and Grace

A water lily mosaic design built on travertine or inside a terra-cotta saucer. Petals are cut into sections, then fired to round the edges and lend an added dimension to the project. Flowers, glass nuggets, and other desired elements are glued to the substrate, then grouted, cleaned, and polished.

Fly a Kite
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Lisa Vogt
Fused and slumped glass kites decorated with beach and meadow themes. Design pieces are cut from fusible sheet glass and glued to the base glass. A metal frame is added to give the kites support and add the tail to give them the appearance of flying. Firing schedules are included.

Pheasant
Design by Mary Harris, Text by Darlene Welch
A 16" x 20‑1/2" stained glass panel featuring a pheasant in flight. A three-dimensional feel is achieved by letting the tips of the bird’s wings and the foliage extend past the inside edges of the border. This project is constructed using the copper foil technique.
