Editor's Letter

by Kate Hensler Fogarty

Since its founding in 1979, GLASS Quarterly has operated essentially independently of UrbanGlass. It would be easy for UrbanGlass to shamelessly promote itslef through a seemingly autonomous publication. But the magazine's founders thought it more important to create an accurate, impeccable record of the incredible talent and happenings in glass art, design, and culture, and 25 years later, GLASS continues this endeavor.
