GLASS SEURAT- This commission is based on a conté crayon drawing by French post-Impressionist painter Georges Seurat (1859- 1891). This glass version is made of 20 double layered, fused glass panels, which are set into an existing back lit wall, between the kitchen and living space.

 

ABOUT JOSEPH

Joseph Cavalieri runs CAVAglass, a stained glass design and production studio in New York City. His focus is making one-of-a-kind commissions and art for exhibitions in the US and internationally. He specializes in contemporary stained glass, often based on fables and books, as well as production of these works using techniques including hand painting, air brushing, and sand blasting stained glass. He has worked with fabricators Willet Hauser Architectural Glass Inc. in Minnesota, and Derix Art Glass in Germany.

 

 

“One of the really interesting things that Joseph does is tap into all of our associations with stained glass and then flips them on end”.

 — Jennifer Scanlan, Associate Curator at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York

 

 

Joseph’s focus is hand-painted stained glass art using methods created by Medieval artists. He first draws the design, then cuts colored glass pieces to fit the design. These fit together like a large puzzle. He then paints each section of glass with enamels that are kiln fired, melting the design onto the glass. The glass is then soldered together, set into a wall hung metal frame with internal LED lighting. Though the technique is very historic, Cavalieri updates the stories illustrated in the work to relate to the past, present and future. Past is the traditional stained glass vibrant illuminated colors, designs, and patterns. The present are images from current icons like The Simpson‘s and Alice in Wonderland!

 

 

JOSEPH’S WORK

 

 

 

 

CINDERELLA- Magical characters of Cinderella, her fairy godmother and the magical pumpkin carriage come from an existing antique slide. They are combined on stage in front of an audience of muscle men. Commissioned work.

 

 

 

MADONNA & PRADA- Commissioned in 2013, and currently in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design. This multiple layered stained glass triptych tells the story of a modern day Madonna and her favorite accessories. Traditional religious paintings typically shows Madonna caressing the Baby Jesus. The Christ Child is replaced with a Gothic version of a Prada shoe.

 

 

 

 

 

HANSEL & GRETEL-  See this work in person in the lounge of Dixon Place in New York City. This work is based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale “Hansel & Gretel” and uses characters from the production at the New York Metropolitan Opera.

 Glass by Tony Glander

Tony Glander started working in stained glass in 1989. It didn’t take long for him to become totally hooked on making beautiful art works in colored glass. In 1990 he purchased a stained glass studio, Glass Fantasies in Gaithersburg, MD. “I love every technique from cold glass to hot glass”!

 

 

Glass by Tony Glander

Wanting to further expand the quality of his work, Tony added silk screening to his many skills. “I never really cared for faces done in stained glass so one day I had a brainstorm – use a silk screened photo on the glass.” He tried using a picture of his wife and the results were simply stunning. “After that piece, I was hooked on using screen printing anytime I could. Although I have created a lot of really nice pieces, my best works of art are my young children Maya and Lucas.”

MCMOW  WORKSHOP

 

 

This class will begin with a visual study of works created by the founders of the Abstract Expressionism movement that emerged in the 40′s & 50′s, during a time of Cold War politics and social conservatism. The style was defined as an unbridled artistic statement of freedom used to convey strong emotional or expressive content. These artists were inspired by the jazz music of their time, often listening to jazz while creating their works. We’ll follow their lead and have some fine jazz playing in the classroom studio to inspire our own Glasspressive content.

 

 

Next you will create your very own impressionistic piece of glass art! Randy will describe and demonstrate a number of decorative glass techniques that are essential for this process including frit stenciling, stringer shaping, wet noodles, powder smears, sifting, stick lighting, cold combing, flyspecking, plus many more. Class includes all materials and one kiln firing. Note: Forming and shaping firings are not included but can be arranged for an additional fee.

 

 

About the Impressionism Movement:

 

Impressionism is a 19th-century art movement that originated with a group of Paris-based artists whose independent exhibitions brought them to prominence during the 1870s and 1880s. Impressionist painting characteristics include relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes, open composition, emphasis on accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities (often accentuating the effects of the passage of time), ordinary subject matter, inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience, and unusual visual angles.
