The Design Process for 'Painting with Light - A Fusing Technique'
Conceptual designs are developed in Illustrator. The Images can be pre-designed, and other times they evolve out of a response to the glass itself.
The design becomes the template. With glass, the substrate IS the image. The artwork is made by assembling sometimes hundreds of small, custom-cut pieces of sheet glass, combined with glass powders known as frit, and melting them all together in the kiln to form an image. The work becomes a response to what these pieces are “suggesting.” Tim works in an abstract figurative language, with a formal approach to composition and color, ranging from realism to abstraction. Lighting of fine arts pieces will be covered. Tim specializes in custom framing and LED lighting.
