Imagery on Glass – Joseph Cavalieri
February 16 - February 20$1000
Stained Glass Painting
If you are new to stained glass or a seasoned professional this class
will appeal to you. Learn basics of stained glass cutting, copper foiling, and soldering, with a focus on painting techniques including air-brush- ing glass (using an atomizer), “pen and-ink drawing” (using a crow-quill pen), printing using an existing silk-screen the instructor will bring, and sandblasting glass. You don’t need to be a professional painter, as we will be tracing images. Enamels are painted then kiln fired onto the sur- face of the glass, then the glass is soldered together. This technique was used by medieval artists to make some very serious religious work, but it is 2022, so the choice of imagery is totally up to your imagination! Framing, lighting and advice on marketing your work will be discussed in class.
Aesop’s Fables in Stained Glass
This class appeals to students who know the basics of stained glass and want to take it to the next level. We will be illustrating a fable as well as learning and practicing many techniques.
A fun class based on historic, and often creepy, Aesop’s fables. Each student has a choice of a fable to base their work on, then, with Cava- lieris’ guidance, sketches a plan for a glass panel about 12 x 12 inches (30x 30 cm). In class we learn different processes to add imagery onto the glass surface using kiln fired enamel paints. No painting or drawing experience needed, we can trace found images!
Techniques include painting, air-brushing (using an atomizer), ‘pen-and- ink drawing’, and sandblasting. After the paints are kiln fired onto the glass we will copper foil and solder the glass together to create the final work.
