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.
