Joseph Cavalieri will feature his glass art work in the Hays Gallery. His stained glass pieces are made using a technique that was originally created by Medieval stained glass artists, and uses enamel paints which are made of ground glass, metals and pigment. These paints are applied to the glass surface then kiln fired at a temperature of 1300 degrees fahrenheit (700 degrees celsius). Once cooled the glass is soldered together with lead. Joseph’s work is set into wall hung stainless steel light boxes with internal LED lighting. (Cavaglass.com)
