The Flow Newsletter Spring  Edition
May 2009
Dear Readers,

The Flow Cover Sp09With such a wealth of information available to pass along to our readers, we wanted to include as many articles and tutorials as possible. That's why we decided to provide shorter versions of several articles in our magazine and post the complete version on our website.  You'll find these exclusive online extended articles for the Seahorse Tutorial by Kimberly Affleck plus Tight Buds and Blossoms by Carmen Anderson featuring Kate Fowle Meleney, Kristina Logan, Sherry Bellamy, Melanie Moertel, and Terri Caspary Schmidt. We know you'll also want to read Shane Fero, American Lampworker Extraordinaire by Dr. Ed King. This is an in-depth interview, so sit back and enjoy yourself. 

Please visit our booth at the Degenerate Flame Off, presented by Cornerstone Glass and The Melting Pot, May 29-31, 2009, held in Eugene, Oregon.  

Keep it hot,
The Flow Magazine
