From the Editor

Twist on Tradition
by Delynn Ellis
Managing Editor Delynn Ellis reminds readers that they should never be afraid to try something new. Many of the contributors to Glass Patterns Quarterly continually work to raise their art to new levels, then share their discoveries with the readers of GPQ.

Angel of Peace
An Introduction to Stained Glass
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Lidia K. Anderson
A free-form angel pendant with a 2" x 2" square bevel on point for the diamond-shaped body, clear granite iridescent glass for the wings, and a faceted glass bead for the head. A jump ring is attached for hanging. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Oh, Christmas Tree
Design, Fabrication, Text, and Photography by Robin L. Anderson
A 16" x 20" stained glass holiday panel featuring a Christmas tree in front of a window that allows the snowy landscape outside to show through. The tree is decorated by gluing on miniature objects including trinkets, balls, and garland pieces. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Holiday Bevel Votive
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Julie Feigum
A three-dimensional votive stand created with five 1-3/4" x 3" diamond bevels joined in a star-shaped background for the votive. Brass square tubing and fanned rectangular bevels form the stand. Decorations are added using wire, glass beads, and colored glass. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Mad Etching Skills
Hocus Pocus Etched and Stacked Dichroic Panel
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Carmen Flores Tanis
An etched Halloween panel using Photoshop to cut and paste the initial artwork into separate layers. The images are etched onto the glass using printable resist film, then cut out and glued together in layers to form the panel. The pieces are fire-polished to soften the cut edges.

Cattails
Design by Denise Rogers, Text by Delynn Ellis
A 20" x 20" stained glass panel featuring cattails outlined against a river, rolling hills, and a full moon. This view is at dusk, but the design could easily be customized by incorporating favorite glass colors and textures. The project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Spook-tacular Fun!
Fused Halloween Plate
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Lisa Vogt
A 12" circular fused and slumped plate showing a cheery ghost and his Halloween message. Shapes are cut out that make up the free-form top border, which are later filled in with dark frit to enhance the ghost’s face and hands. Firing, fusing, and slumping schedules are included for finishing the plate.

Festive Fun
Painted and Fused Holly Wreath
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Helen Dyne
A sparkling holiday wreath made from fused float glass enriched with gold and green mica powders. Accent leaves are cut from standard sheet aluminum, and silver plated wire is shaped and added to the wreath to enhance the design. A kiln schedule is included for obtaining a soft-textured finish for the leaves.

Candy Canes
Design by Chantal Paré, Text by Delynn Ellis
An 11‑1/2" x 19‑1/2" stained glass holiday panel featuring a trio of Christmas candy canes tied up with a big green bow. Depth is added to the design through the use of clear textured glasses for the background and border. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Opalescence
Design by Randolph Raum, Text by Delynn Ellis

by Dennis Brady
Instructions for building and using a vitrigraph kiln from a regular kiln, which can still be used for normal firing after the conversion.
