Digital design, as seen on the following pages, is no longer a discipline with a single visual signature redefining what is visually real, but rather branches into a myriad of visual languages, intellectual pursuits and experiential tones. The frames that used to define digital creativities, even a decade ago, are constantly being re-framed. Accordingly, essays in this compilation were divided into four subject categories, directing the reader’s attention to various thematic readings. This division reflects the ever-growing richness and diversity of digitally created content. However, any categorization is a simplified convention that provides artificial boundaries. The included projects cover broad conceptual, visual and educational themes. While each paper is internally consistent and coherent, they often cross established boundaries and venture into the unknown.

Glass beadmaking has exploded in popularity--and those artists who have successfully mastered the basics want more techniques to enhance their repertoire. Jeri Warhaftig, a respected and experienced teacher, offers intermediates her time-tested, workshop-based approach to expanding their beadmaking skills. In each superbly illustrated and illuminating chapter, she focuses on using current tools, new materials, and innovative methodology to produce a singular bead--with several variations for every one. The possibilities, from sandblasting to metal inclusions, are stupendous: Craft sculptural flower beads; create a lightweight, hollow seashell-shaped bead; and go for the "wow” factor with geode beads that enclose decorative elements within a layer of glass. Helpful tips are sprinkled throughout, and a gallery of additional work will inspire.
