The Fall 2012 issue of The Flow reminds us that the concept of the flame off competition for lampworking artists was inaugurated ten years ago in November 2002 by Lewis Wilson and that The Flow was born out of that experience. This issue also brings readers six full-color, step-by-step tutorials that demonstrate using incalmo techniques to create dishes and medallions, making skull and barrel beads for Día de los Muertos jewelry, layering glass colors, fashioning pens, and making an imploded jellyfish marble. There are also loads of articles on how artists are inspired by poetry and the things in their everyday lives plus tips for having a well-organized studio. bead artist, Jami Hamilton, and sculptural artist, Nathan Adami, are also featured as the latest nominees for the Glasscraft Emerging Artist Award. News on important flameworking events plus answers to your kiln questions round out this great issue.
