The July/August 2022 issue of Glass Art® is filled with profiles of exceptional glass artists plus tips for improving your own creations. Glass art pioneer Paul J. Stankard, who challenged the angle from which glass paperweights are viewed, has created a thoughtfully authentic artistic language. A look at the mosaic art of Connie Vetter-Johnson explores how she uses thousands of glass shards that flow almost seamlessly to create photorealistic portraits. Readers are also introduced to Sibylle Peretti, Austin Stern, Stine Bidstrup, and Yukiko Sugano, the Fall and Winter residency recipients at The Corning Museum of Glass. Murano flameworking artists Amy West, Davide Fuin, co-owners of the El Cocal all-female flameworking studio Marianna Oliboni and Chiara Lee Taiaro, Lucia Santini, and Mauro Vianello discuss how their studios have been affected by the European gas crisis, and Milon Townsend shares the benefits of using implosion and compression techniques when encasing glass sculptures with borosilicate. Rounding out this issue is news from the American Glass Guild on its upcoming 2022 Summer Conference at The Corning Museum of Glass and the Contemporary Glass Society’s latest exhibition partnership with the Craft Centre and Design Gallery in Leeds, UK.
