Editor's Letter/Letters

by Victoria Milne

If this issue has a theme, it might be "ways of working." In our look at Bruce Chao's research, this idea is explicit; investigation is part of his work. And in our profile of three female artists, "Women of New York,: it's plain that these artists have to account for economic as well as technical and philosophical pressures in their work. Ways of working are part of Nancy Bowen's story as much as they would be for any artist, and method is really the essence of what we have to talk about when it comes to a business like teh BUllseye Glass Company. However, as ways of working specifically with glass came up as a question through the articles in this issue, I was moved to wonder again about the relevance of Harvey Littleton's remark from the 1960s, "technique is cheap."
