Personal Development
Form Follows Function
by Milon Townsend
Some forms found in artwork have obvious function requirements, such as a bowl that holds liquid without tipping over, paperweights that have a flat bottom, or marbles that can’t have one. However, there are also other very important functions that artists need to consider that are not always quite as obvious, including things such as the way sales, shipping, assembly, and profit enter into the success of an artist’s studio.

Maureen Henriques
Animal Conservation Driving Glass Exploration
by Margaret Zinser Hunt
Photography by Nick Letson and Maureen Henriques
The beads, small sculptures, and jewelry created by Maureen Henriques of Pumpkin Hill Beads tell a story of her subject matter as well as her rich creativity and passion for metalwork and glasswork. Her sense of humor and playful spirit shine through in her whimsical miniatures and her macabre jewelry components. Wildlife conservation, particularly of large African mammals, is a prominent theme in her work.

Making Dewdrops
From Idea to installation
by David Patchen
David Patchen and fellow artist Jon Moreno created a perfect combination of glassblowing, design, engineering, and craftsmanship for eight sculptures titled Dewdrops, a commission for Norwegian Cruise Line. The work is comprised of elegant crescents of glass with crystal clear spheres of “dew” clinging to them. Like dew, the spheres act as lenses to refract light and offer interesting views of the surroundings.

Suzanne Head
Communicating the Narrative
by Sara Sally LaGrand
Suzanne Head uses glass in a most pure form, but she also uses whatever material will communicate the narrative. Even in her high school years, she focused on art as a tool for communication. Her work, created in layered frit with the look of painting, continues to resonate themes of femininity, animal characteristics, and human purpose.
Skills and Techniques
A New Approach to Printing on Glass
by Bob Leatherbarrow and Becky Wills
Recent advances in rendering images on glass borrow from traditional screen printing techniques to reproduce fine detail and halftone images of photographs, writing, and even the artist’s own drawings. ScreenEasy, a new product developed by glass artists Becky Wills and Markina Filer, provides a very simple process that uses frameless screens to transfer enamel paint designs onto glass.
A Glass and Mosaic Family Legacy

by Shawn Newton
Photography by Dreamwalls Glass, Jonathan P. Ellgen, and Courtesy of Lakewood Cemetery Shared by Permission of the Society of American Mosaic Artists
The Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA) takes a look at the J&R Lamb Studios, America’s oldest continuously run decorative arts company. Lamb Studios was the creative force behind the stunning mosaic art that decorates the Lakewood Memorial Chapel, the architectural centerpiece of the Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and by many accounts contains the most perfect examples of Byzantine-style mosaic art in the United States.
