Impressions in Glass

Joseph Peretto

September 17 – October 12

Reception Sept. 21st from 2-5 pm

I have enjoyed working with glass for over 30 years. As a child I was exposed to Cathedrals in South America and have always
enjoyed the reflectivity of the colors from the stained-glass windows. When I was older I became very interested in the process
of stained glass making, which I have learned through classes, reading material, and apprenticeships with several other artists.

I have worked on many stained glass projects through the years. I enjoy the spectrum of colors when the light is shining through
them and reflect on other surfaces.

Over the last 6 years I have branched out, learning about fusing glass and controlling temperature, which is the essence of the work. Combining colors and the freedom of abstract concepts enhances the beauty of a glass piece.

I love how glass gives me the freedom to express my views of colors and combinations. It is very exciting for me when I open
the kiln and see what I have created. It could be anything from abstract design to landscapes.

When I create a landscape on glass, I try to make the glass match my interpretation of nature. I also construct the frames for
my glass pieces. I enjoy the welding process from the steel works for creating the display stands. I love to combine glass
and steel to create my work.
