Flow Winter 09 Cover Holding MagDear Readers,

With the release of our Winter 2009 5th Annual Women in Glass issue, we also celebrate our twenty-fifth issue of The Flow. As we look back at our first release seven years ago, this is the perfect opportunity to say, "Thank you." The road we have all traveled through your submissions and contributions to your glass community is well documented in the archives of The Flow. On our CDs, Beads & Jewelry 1 & 2 and Sculptural 1 & 2 plus Marbles and Advanced Techniques, you'll find a collection of those Projects in PDF format. All of the Tutorials and Articles are by and about leading glass artists and industry experts. The CDs also include Women in Glass, Emerging Artists, and a Canadian Gallery.

At this time The Flow can also say we host the largest Calendar of Events in the industry. When you subscribe to The Flow, you are supporting the glass arts.


Happy Holidays,
Go with The Flow

Korean-born glass artist, Eun-Suh Choi, is something of a portrait artist whose flameworked pieces are personal narratives--portraits of her own moments of growth. Her story is the archetypal immigrant's tale.
