Glass Art E-Newsletter November/December 2012




November/December 2012

The Best of the Best 


In this last issue of 2012, Glass Art continues its quest to provide readers with the best in cold, warm, and hot glass. Cold glass is represented by stained glass icon and designer CZ Lawrence and his behind-the-scenes look at creating five windows for the Washington National Cathedral. Next we celebrate warm glass and 40 years of groundbreaking work from Leslie Perlis. Closing out the issue with hot glass, Beth Lipman's still lifes examine themes of growth and decay, desire and consumption, and the literal embodiment of ourselves in our objects.


In addition to inspiring and informing in print, Glass Expert Webinars™ sponsored by Glass Art and Glass Patterns Quarterly have been an overwhelming success! Seventy two percent of those who have participated report that they are very likely to attend another, and 95 percent say they would recommend Glass Expert Webinars™ to a friend.


Glass Art renews its commitment to bringing you the best of the best in 2013. Cold, warm, and hot glass will be featured in each issue along with the latest news from all the glass organizations dedicated to each area of glassworking. 

Moving on to another year of sharing successes and building partnerships,


Shawn Waggoner

The Evolution of a Style

Margaret Neher 

with Marcie Davis


I knew nothing about orchids when I started, but I began to see them in books and was ere were just hundreds and hundreds of different species and different subspecies. Facinated by them, not only by the brilliant colors and the beauty of the flowers, but I didn't try an orchid until my technique progressed to the point where I could think through how to do it, much less actually do it. This article was originally published on page 42 of the March/April 2012 issue of Glass Art.
