We thought we could all do with something to brighten up the winter months of January and February and bring in something to make us dream of sun and warmth!
The theme for this online gallery show is simple. Something yellow!
60 CGS members were chosen for the show, highlighting varied and delightful bursts of colour using vibrant yellows within glass.
This online exhibition was launched on 5th of February 2016
We had an overwhelming number of entries for this show, so thank you to all those that submitted work and if your work was not selected this time, please do apply for the next show in the coming weeks.

Lap O’ Luxury
Details: Medium: Vitreous enamel, layered glass, flashed glass, solder, LED lights, Size: 19 x 27 x 2 inches / 48.2 x 86.5 x 5 cm Date: 2010
This work is a fine example of Robert Crumb’s long obsession with women with strong legs. Mr. Crumb agreed to let Cavalieri use some of his iconic images in his glass work. They were produced during Cavalieri’s three month residency at the Museum of Arts and Design in Manhattan. The challenge with these works was to reproduce as close as possible a pen & ink drawing to hand painted enamel on glass. This panel is based on comic book cover and is hand painted and set in a light box with LED lights.

Taking cues from the concept of the beach as a liminal space, where boundaries between sea and land are blurred, my Liminal Beach series has evolved as a collection of decorative and sculptural centrepieces cast in lead crystal. Variance of thickness and the blending of colours has been achieved through the use of glass with a high lead content. Details of textural imprints left from ebb and flow of the tide upon the sand have been highlighted to achieve depth in the centre and delicacy at the edge.
Mould making is the start of the process to create fluid, textural forms which are invested into plaster. Casting and shaping takes place within a kiln at precise temperatures to achieve textural details and highlight surface qualities and reflections through the glass.

Landscape Portrait, Cast Glass, Lost Ice Process, with salt erosion
Photographer: Sylvain Deleu
Details: 22x30x15 (cm, wxhxd)
I interpret landscapes through exploration of material. I focus on rugged coastlines, looking at erosion as a spectacle of discovery and generation of form, revealing a sense of the history and movement of a place. The work is produced using my ‘Lost Ice Process.’ I use salt to sculpt ice as a one-off ephemeral model to take a direct cast from. The textures this provides and the transient nature of the creative process reflects the erosion and sense of time I want to represent in the landscape.
Landscape Portrait is based on the Dorset coastline.

Details: kiln-formed deep vessel, celebrating the 24 species of bumblebee found in the UK
deep vessel, glass sheet, vitrograph stringer and rod; 16cm height; 13cm diameter. These charming and familiar insects are a delight to watch and to hear their deep 'buzz' is the epitome of summertime. They are also critical to pollination; most UK species have suffered serious decline. Raising awareness of their plight, we might help them recover.

An abstract view of the base of a free blown sculptural (Sommerso) vessel.
Inner casing of daffodil yellow with a very thick clear outer casing.
The form was manipulated hot whilst on the blowing iron in order to create surface undulations.
I never overlook the significance of the base of blown pieces - the polished hollowed punty
accentuates the optical properties of the material.
It's fun photographing work from different angles -quite educational and full of pleasant surprises!

My current work explores the nature of interaction between people and objects on an emotional level.

One of two objects I made during a two week course at the Cesty Sklá Glass school in Sazava, Czech Republic, which was taught by František Janák.The aim, for me, was to explore the creation of simple geometric forms using techniques other than those I was used to (that being blown & cut glass).

The stored warmth of yellow sun enables the hard glass kernel to slowly emerge from the soft feather lined pod. It breaks its cover of winter detritus from hibernation and bursts into growth.

Thames, gateway to London
Photographer: Paul Takahashi
Details: Kiln carved Bullseye Glass, 290x240x6mm.
Flying into London Heathrow I was treated to a fine view of the sinuous Thames, glinting in the sunlight. It was the year before the Jubilee and Olympics and I was moved to make an abstract glass image that celebrated the Thames as the gateway to London and its life. I capitalised extracts from poems about the Thames onto kiln felt and used the cut out letters to make the outlines of the buildings crowding around the river. Exhibited with the original photograph, as part of the Helsinki Photography Biennial, 2012.
