FROM THE MOLTEN GLASS TO THE EXPRESSIVE IMAGE

Deconstructing painting and reforming it in glass with an added dimension

A workshop that tackles the making of imagery in glass and introduces the most recent techniques in the language of glass fusing.

This workshop is for painters who wish to execute their paintings in glass and for glass artists who wish to use visual imagery. The focus of the workshop is not to make objects, but rather to create images with and in glass that come alive with transmitted light.

The goals of his workshop:

-To stimulate a new understanding of what is possible today as a fine artist working with glass.

-To enable participants to grasp the basics of the new glass language necessary to execute any image. 

Narcissus Quagliata will share in a systematic manner all of the latest technical advances in creating imagery in glass for the painter, the stained glass artist, and artists who have already worked with fusing.

The workshop will be hands on, so that each day every participant will place in the kiln some small panel samples to experience first hand the techniques that are being presented. The interaction between enamel painting and fusing will be explored as well.

In the conceptual portion of the workshop each day, Narcissus will lecture, using Power Points, on the basics necessary to work with fusing. He will also explore and deconstruct with a great level of detail new and recent works executed in fused glass.
 

About the Artist:
Narcissus Quagliata, a U.S. Citizen, was born in Rome, Italy in 1942 where he studied painting with the metaphysical painter Giorgio De Chirico. At the age of 19, Narcissus moved to the United States and studied at the San Francisco Art Institute receiving both a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Painting & Graphics.  Soon after graduation, he began working in glass and continues to use it as his principle form of artistic expression. Narcissus has twice received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts for his work in the U.S.  Over the span of his career he has worked in Europe, The U.S., Mexico and Asia.
