Ian Chadwick
Social Media Fuels a Leap to Art
by Colleen Bryan
Photography by Julie Jones Photography and Ian Chadwick
Ian Chadwick trained as a fine artist, but when he left the university, the work he undertook was decidedly craft. He began to create densely patterned objects, but his fine art training nagged at him to pull his work toward emphasizing ideas and feelings, and social media became the catalyst for making that leap.

Exploring Glass Art That Conveys History
by Sara Sally LaGrand
Photography by Andrew Smenos, Echard Wheeler, Jason Bauer, Romina Gonzales, and Erica Rosenfeld
Since childhood, Erica Rosenfeld has found that piecing together and bringing her own order to smaller parts has been calming and therapeutic.

What Sells?
by Dennis Brady
Photography by Richard Bruck, Jon Erickson, and James A. Veenstra
Artists who hope to sell their glass art can’t assume that just because they like it, others will buy it. One of the best ways to sell work instead of trying to make it cheaper or better is to create something different that no one else makes.

Personal Development
Finding the Good in the Unexpected
by Milon Townsend
Artists should train themselves to recognize the good in the unexpected. Sometimes what seems like a failure because the results don’t turn out as expected can actually become the beginning of a novel technique, a new series of work, or a piece that is even better than the one that was originally planned.
