About Caron Art Glass Galleries
The Caron art Glass Project Galleries display a collection of my work organized into various categories. They include: sculpture; panels; architectural installations; lighting; mosaic; tableware; jewelry; bagatelles; Christmas Crêche and Santons. I hope the images give you a sense of what is possible and perhaps inspire you to have a piece of art created just for you. If you see something that interests you or that you have a question about, please contact me, Michelle, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Caron Art Glass Galleries: Sculpture
The sculptures that I create combine fused glass with other materials such as copper, slate, granite, wood, etc. I think the contrast between the smooth plasticity of the fused glass and the texture of the other elements creates visual interest. I enjoy creating the sculptures because it allows me to think in three dimensions which adds challenge and possibilities.
Caron Art Glass Galleries: Panels
The panels in this collection have been created for many purposes. Some were wedding or retirement gifts, other were done for businesses to showcase their logos. Stained glass panels have the flexibility to be displayed in different locations and to be moved to a new location easily. I create the designs in concert with the client’s ideas and taste in mind.
Caron Art Glass Galleries: Architectural Installations
I designed the panels that are highlighted in this section to be permanently installed as part of the architecture of the building. They are located in both public and private spaces that included residences, churches, mosques, libraries and even yachts. I develop the design with the surrounding architecture in mind.
Caron Art Glass Galleries: Lighting
The lighting creations in this gallery provide examples of some of the ways that glass can be used to add color and interest to various locations both inside and out. Some examples use traditional stained glass while others use fused glass.
Caron Art Glass Galleries: Mosaic
Examples of mosaic work include the use of art glass tesserae, fused glass, broken dishes, stones, sea shells and the possibilities are endless. You can permanently install a piece of mosaic or frame it and hang it on a wall. I give special pieces of dish ware that are now broken a new purpose as I integrate them into a new piece of artwork.
Caron Art Glass Galleries: Tableware
I showcase a range of fused glass table ware in this gallery. The items range from serving platters to wine bottle coasters. I frequently use hand raked glass for the table ware which makes each piece very unique.
Caron Art Glass Galleries: Office And Library
The items featured in this gallery offer unique ideas for ways to stay organized. Fused glass business card holders, bookmarks and lamp pulls make wonderful gifts.
Caron Art Glass Galleries: Jewelry
The jewelry I create often features dichroic glass to add some pop to the piece. Pendants can range from petit to statement size.
Caron Art Glass Galleries: Bagatelles
I create bagatelles as small pieces of fused glass art that add a bit of whimsy to a room or garden. You can suspend them in front of a mirror, from a lamp or even hang from a tree branch.
Caron Art Glass Galleries: Crêche and Santons
This gallery features stained glass Christmas crêche and santons and they are an expression of my love for things French. At Christmas, people in the south of France create entire scenes using terra cotta figurines. They are molded, bisque fired and then finally hand painted to look like the Holy Family and the villagers. Each one has a special gift to share with the newborn baby. These figurines, called santons, inspired the stained glass creations.
I hope you enjoy the Caron Art Glass galleries.
