Letter from the Editor

A New Platform for Glass Education, Support, and Community

   Let me introduce you to Glass Art magazine’s new podcast, Talking Out Your Glass! This biweekly show features interviews and discussions with world-renowned glass artists and respected experts in hot, warm, and cold glass. In Episodes 1 and 2, internationally respected artist, Narcissus Quagliata, discusses his 2013 book, Archetypes and Visions in Light and Glass, as well as highlights from his 40 years of groundbreaking glass projects. Subscribe on iTunes and Stitcher or go to the link on Glass Art magazine’s website www.glassartmagazine, where you’ll also find our upcoming Webinar schedule and back issues of the magazine.

   The cover art for Talking Out Your Glass is a detail of Razzle Dazzle Boats by Studio Glass movement pioneer and Glass Art’s May/June 2016 cover artist, Richard Marquis. Freely sharing his knowledge of Italian glassworking processes learned in Venice, Marquis demonstrated and taught throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. The effect of Venetian glassblowing techniques on American studio glass enabled glass artists to expand their technical vocabularies and, combined with new and experimental approaches, led to the redefinition of glass as an artistic medium. Stay tuned for my interview with Marquis on Talking Out Your Glass.

   This early summer issue also showcases the architectural cast glass of Walter Gordinier and blown and carved work from the U.K.’s Allister Malcolm and Helen Millard made during their collaborative residency at the Corning Museum of Glass. Additional features include a farewell to pioneer Marvin Lipofsky, Dr. Laura Schlessinger’s glass art auctioned to help veterans through Operation Family Fund, and a look at the work of Ed Schmid and Dave Mireault, who harness excess furnace heat from their hot shop in support of additional cottage industries.

   Follow Glass Art on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest, and subscribe now to Talking Out Your Glass, your podcast source for information, conversation, and developments in hot, warm, and cold glass.

Creating community through expanded glass coverage in print and online,
