Glass Bead Evolution

Glass Bead Evolution is the emagazine of the ISGB and is created by beadmakers for beadmakers. Every issue features a complementary medium while maintaining a strong emphasis on glass. Each issue is provided quarterly, as a digital download and is free as a part of ISGB membership. Back issues may be purchased by members or non-members and certain back issues are still available in print. See below.

Glass Bead Evolution provides its readership robust content that includes insight into artists’ private worlds, tours of fascinating venues, tips and techniques for both glass and complementary mediums, safety articles, a showcase of exquisite work, and reviews of tools, materials, tutorials, and books.

Journey

Journey is a glimpse into the evolution of ISGB members who have chosen to share their
personal growth in beadmaking while supporting our organization. This fundraising effort 
was open to all members, from newcomers to well-known lampworkers, or somewhere
in between. Some chose to show just their current work while others included a visual
timeline from their early days working with glass to now.

 

 

Journey is 80 pages plus cover featuring 77 ISGB members and five chapters and is available
for purchase as a PDF download for $15 (please click on the Add to Cart button below) or as
print-on-demand book for $39 plus shipping
