An online exhibition highlighting 25 member artists that demonstrate the art of printing on to glass.
Printing on glass is a technological development used for the application of imagery, pattern or text to the surface of this material. It has allowed for new possibilities in glass decoration and treatment.
We hope you enjoy this exhibition and thank you to all those that entered work. All work was juried by the CGS.
This exhibition was launched on 31st October 2015.

A glass cube in the open re flexing everything that goes on around it. The light passes through it black and clear like dreams. All is peaceful
Printed glass tower, the words are the 'notice of rights' read to you when you are arrested, a modern 'Tower' of Babel'. Inspired by our multi-cultured society.
Layers of images on glass using transfer printing technique.
The pebble-like feel of the tumbled flash glass gave me inspiration to repeatedly ink then wipe the glass which gave a Raku type effect, it was then finally printed with the Celtic symbols and bonded with copper foil
These combined elements surrounded with bark complete the earthiness of this piece which is called Arborescence.
Using pressed ivy leaves, I printed directly onto the glass will glass paint to achieve this texture
I had decals made from my photos of the Passage House Inn and neighbouring houses,which I fired on to the glass. Then I added colour and definition with enamels. In these panels I was aiming to combine the drama of fused glass in the sky and water with traditional leadwork, linking to the dark lines of the old beams and woodwork of the Inn.
Fused and blown glass vessel made with screen printed text extracts from the book 'Lighthousekeeping' by Jeanette Winterson. Intended to represent stormy North Atlantic seas and the Cape Wrath lighthouse as well as a homage to the humble marker bouy. Marks around the top have been added to reflect salt trails on marker bouys. Made July 2015.

Screen-printed fired enamel and acid resist on pot-metal and flashed glasses; further articulation using free-painted gold lustre and amber silver stain. Bonded onto 8mm float glass with a 2-part silicone adhesive.
This work explores the boundaries between hot glass and printed enamel making processes
Pearman was selected as the artist and consultant for a Capital Build Programme for Burnham on Crouch Primary School. His input involved integrating artwork into the redesign of the school, including an architectural glass application to the new assembly hall main glazing. Pearman developed a series of artworks that investigates our relationship toward the built environment.
Arenicola draws on the relation between hot glass and print languages.

Copper foil panel using photo transfer prints and fusing
A photo of a wall panel created for exhibition. I used red enamels and different transparent enamels to create a flow and a movement within the panel. It has botanical and geometric influences, but this piece was mostly process led. I find the contrast between the sandblast and enamels interesting to play with.
Fused glass in acrylic stand
Photograph of Chilham village square near Canterbury, Kent.
I prepared the screens using the facilities at Intra, in Rochester. The printing itself was done using two colours of Glassline on float glass, which after firing was subsequently backed with white wispy art glass and copper foiled. The piece was completed yesterday (29th October 2015).
Free blown Graal vessel. Reverse printed digital ceramic transfers applied to outer surface of clear
blank. Overpainted by hand with high firing onglaze enamels & cased in clear furnace glass.
A private commission for a collector who wanted a piece based on my (or part of!) life rather
than his which was rather unusual. Transfers (read from the inside) are of drawings on paper &
paintings in/on glass and actual photos. The outside hand painting relates more to my personal life
mainly centering around my hometown of Hull which will be UK City Of Culture 2017.A kind of
self portrait/autobiographical piece.- quite a journey really!
In this work I was inspired by the nature and characteristics of water, using five layers of Bullseye glass to bring a sense of depth, rhythm and flow to the piece, and incorporating an appropriately watery and romantic quote from Shakespeare: "I to the world am like a drop of water, that in the ocean seeks another drop".
It measures 28cms across and 7cms deep, and was made in 2014. It is priced at £250.
This piece is a glass print. The image was first carved into a glass plate using sandblasting, then I added color and pressed the plate against a rice paper using an engraving press. Woman 2 is part of an ongoing cycle dedicated to Woman, which comprises works in glass, glass prints, clay sculptures.
'Stretched' is a continuation of a project that explores the tensions created in nylon. The nylon is pulled and stretched to the point of breaking, and it is that very moment that is captured.
