Glass

 

Karen and Geoff Caldwell combine three difficult and disparate glass techniques to create their signature fine art glass panels: fusing, hand-painting, and traditional stained glass construction. Their latest series features flora, created by fusing, fauna rendered in the technique of medieval hand-painting, and leading. The resulting panels create a stunning story that is enhanced by the tension between the colorful fused flower elements and the finely detailed hand-painted animal images – a patchwork of glass that captures one’s imagination just as it captures the light that passes through it.
