The Summer 2012 issue of The Flow reminds us that collaborating as artists has its challenges but also its rewards. This issue beings you three full-color, step-by-step tutorials that demonstrate how to enhance wood vessels with beads, be successful when creating wig-wag designs, and create a realistic royal angelfish sculpture. There are also loads of articles on forming collaborations with other artists plus three galleries featuring the work of thirty-two glass artists working as individuals as well as collaborators. Beau Tsai, Ikuyo Yamanaka, and Susan Hood are also featured as the latest nominees for the Glasscraft Emerging Artist Award. Creating with glass treasures found by the river in Corning and answers to your kiln questions round out this great issue.
