Glass Studio Open House!

Open House at LeMoyne

LeMoyne Visual Arts Center will host an open house Sunday, March 25th, 1:00 to 3:00 pm, to feature their recently refurbished stained glass studio. The event will be held on the second floor of the Education Center, located behind the main gallery at 125 North Gadsden Street. Examples of various types and colors of glass, as well as tools needed to construct a stained glass window or lamp will be on display.
Stained glass is both an art and a craft. Artistic ability is needed to prepare a design and choose colors. Construction skills are required to render the idea into a pleasing object. This art form has been in existence for centuries, and in the past was most often used to depict religious scenes or figures. Chartres Cathedral, located outside Paris and constructed in the 12th and 13th centuries, has over 150 stained glass windows, most of which have survived despite numerous wars and civil unrest.
Louis Comfort Tiffany was one of America’s best known glass artists. In the late 19th and early 20th century, his studio produced thousands of lamps, windows and other glass objects as well as mosaics, ceramics, jewelry, and enamels.
Most glass used in windows and lamps is not ‘stained’ by applying a color to the surface. The colors come from different combinations of minerals that are added to glass when its molten. As part of the design, the surface of a clear glass can be permanently stained with silver nitrate, a process that has been in use since the 14th century. Using special techniques and materials, the surface of glass can also be painted, then fired in a kiln to make colors permanent.
Most glass for artistic purposes is produced by pouring the molten material onto a metal table, then rolling it flat. Special rollers can be used to add texture or minor imperfections, which add to the appeal since they scatter incoming light. Some companies in Europe and America still produce ‘antique glass,’ which is made by a glass blower.
Starting this fall, LeMoyne will be offering beginning and intermediate classes in stained glass. Students will have the opportunity to construct a small panel of their choice, using either copper foil or lead came. Contact Alexandra Hartsfield, Education Director (education@lemoyne.org, 850.222.7622) or Andrew Miller (acm8738@gmail.com, 850.878.7653) for more details.
