Welcome to The Flow® Winter 2021 issue featuring the 17th annual Women in Glass special. This issue’s 2021 Women in Glass Gallery highlights flameworked glass and mixed media art created by female artists from around the world; themes include whimsical mushrooms, abstract art, birds, fish and other sea creatures, flowers, mythical figures, jewelry, blown vessels, functional glass, butterflies, moths, landscapes, dragons, turtles, insects, cats, mice, and many more. Ania Kyte gives us tips on breaking through the dreaded “maker’s block,” when it seems our muse has disappeared for good. Canadian artist Heather McCaig opens her studio and her heart, offering us a glimpse into her latest work, Heroes, and the heartbreaking inspiration behind it. Joe Samuelson III brings us back to the early days of Caterina Urrata-Weintraub and how her childhood and early years in art school shaped the direction of her work, leading her to her place in glass history as a creator of fantastical toys. Tutorials top off this terrific issue, with Dana George demonstrating stylistic blossoms, Jody Welch giving us tips on making murrine shapes with molds from surprising sources, and Corina Tettinger showing us how to make ribbon cane and apply it to beads for different effects.
