IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE MAGAZINE
24 October 2022: Thank you very much to those of you who took part in our recent survey. The results show that the vast majority of readers are most interested in mosaic and mixed-media mosaic, and want to read more about mosaic art and its artists, but that you’re also interested in finding out about glass art and its artists as a source of inspiration. So, from Issue 5 onwards, which will be published in March 2023, the magazine will be primarily focused on mosaic art and its artists, with one long read on glass art in each issue. The name of the magazine will stay the same, but we’ll change the strapline to show it’s going to be aimed at mosaic enthusiasts. So, in the name Mosaic & Glass, we’ll primarily be referring to mosaic in its traditional forms, along with mosaics created with glass as well as mixed media mosaics that incorporate glass elements. The magazine will also switch to a triannual publishing schedule. We’re very excited to embark on our second year and we hope you continue with us, or join us, on this journey! Thank you to all our readers and supporters! Read more about the survey results here.
