T

he Emerge kiln-formed glass competition started 12 years ago at the Bullseye Glass Company in Portland. The 2016 Emerge/Evolve exhibit at the Bellevue Arts Museum showcases winners of the competition as well as select finalists in the tricky art form. Kiln-formed glass is baked rather than blown, accentuating detail (and flaws) as it finishes in the kiln. A delicate process, creating the right texture and hue of the glass can be more science than art in stages, but it takes a craftsman’s hand to perfect. Carmen Vetter’s “Portland” is a raised topographical, grayscale map of that Oregon city, divided into quadrants with the Willamette river slashing through. Vetter is a past winner of the Emerge competition. The 2016 contest, run by Bullseye, features past winners and finalists of the competition (the “Evolve” portion) as well as others working with the medium (“Emerge”). Some of the works showcase the fragility ‘GLASS’ CONTINUED ON PG 15

4th July Celebration

Extra patrols for the Fourth in Sammamish BY MEGAN CAMPBELL mcampbell@issaquahreporter.com

Sammamish will see extra police patrols leading up to the star-spangled holiday next week. Starting Friday and running through July 4, the Sammamish Police Department will increase the number of police on the roads looking for residents in possession of illegal fireworks or resi-

dents discharging illegal fireworks. And in Sammamish, both offenses come with a hefty fine. Discharging illegal fireworks comes with a $1,000 fine, and possessing them is a $500 fine. Additionally, discharging legal fireworks in an unlawful location comes with a fine of $250. Sammamish Police Chief

Michelle Bennett said the department is increasing patrols for safety reasons. Fireworks injure more than 10,000 people annually in the U.S. and Canada, and more than 35 percent of those injured are children under the age of 15, according to the city of Sammamish. In a typical year, fireworks account for two out of every five fires in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Association. “On average each year, fireworks start 18,500 fires,

including 1,300 structure fires, 300 vehicle fires, and 16,900 outside and other fires,” according to a National Fire Protection Association press release. “These fires cause an annual average of three deaths, 40 civilian injuries, and $43 million in direct property damage.” And it’s for this reason that the city of Sammamish is encouraging residents to “leave the lighting to the professionals,” according to a city press release. The city puts on its annual fireworks display at

Fourth on the Plateau in the Sammamish Commons Plaza Tuesday from 6-10:30 p.m. The Sammamish Commons is located at 801 228th Ave. SE. Food trucks, children’s activities and live music will present family fun leading up to the fireworks show, which begins at 10 p.m. Parking is limited, so the city suggests residents arrive early. Fourth on the Plateau began in 2007; it draws more than 10,000 people to the city commons every
