Guest editorial on sketching stained glass and what it can teach us. Features a detailed study of D’Ascenzo Studios, whose stained glass was popular in the US in the early 20th century, as well as the first thorough account of the evolution of Ukrainian stained glass to the present day. Records from the Kempe Studios are investigated for their research potential; and Technical Inquiry is devoted to an innovative conservation programme for important 14th-century glazing at Exeter Cathedral. Contemporary stained glass includes the collaborative Swansea Glass Beacon project, Glaziers awards and prizewinners, and an extensive New Work Portfolio. Plus a report on Tiffany at auction, 12 book reviews and obituaries for Roy Coomber FMGP, Kathy Shaw-Urlich AMGP, Crear MacCartney and Peter Gibson OBE.
