The circular carving of the clay carries a similar pattern for one to gaze upon. It combines clay, stains glazes and glass to create this tactile design. Glass circles are 10 and 16 inches, and the ceramic circle is 12 inches in diameter. This piece comes with a full sized template and hardware for easy and accurate installation.

About this Artist

Janine Sopp and Barbara Galazzo

"galazzo GLASS sopp CERAMIC is the newly created and innovative design team of glass artist, Barbara Galazzo and ceramic artist, Janine Sopp. "This collaboration gives us the ability to explore and express in our principle medium while we expand ourselves into infinite, creative possibilities. We push the boundaries of our materials in order to intertwine our vision and broaden our connection."

Inspired by these opposing forces, they integrate colorful, fused glass with rich, textural clay, incorporating such opposites as opaque vs. transparent, surface texture vs. glassy smoothness and neutral vs. color, melding ceramic and glass mediums into one cohesive sculptural creation. The glass, with its fluid transparency dances onto and through the richly textured, earthy clay forms.

With attention to design and detail, Galazzo meticulously cuts and combines hundreds of colorful pieces of glass, layering them to create depth in what will become a final fused piece. Using the wheel to initiate a piece, or working with a slab, Sopp alters then adds texture and stain to her organic forms in order to achieve the dimension she seeks. Both are masterful with their use of color.

Both artists have accomplished careers as former dancer/potter and fashion/textile designer. They co-owned a Gallery in NYC, had features in numerous magazines and publications, interior design projects, national and international galleries and museums. In addition, Barbara's glass has received a Niche Award, was on exhibit at the WG at BEII exhibition at Bullseye Gallery and at Chicago S.O.F.A.
