About the Artist
Joseph Cavalieri is an award winning native New York artist and educator. His work can be seen in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design, the Leslie-Lohman Museum and the Stax Museum. Cavalieri has produced private and public art commissions including a MTA Arts for Transit public art installation at the Philipse Manor Train Station in Westchester, New York.
Cavalieri works in a material with a powerful spiritual history: painted stained glass. Since 1997 Joseph has taught workshops around the world, and has been invited to over twelve artist residencies. In 2015 he was the keynote speaker for the Glass Society of Ireland and NCAD Glass Conference.
Cavalieri’s aim is to merge contemporary imagery with the time-honored processes of painted stained glass. This technique 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. Most of Joseph’s work is set into wall hung stainless steel light boxes with internal LED lighting.
