Trail Highlights

Elegance Stained Glass

Elegance Stained Glass

Deb has been working with Stained Glass for 20 years now. Her business Elegance Stained Glass has been an industry leader in Sydney since 1989, and has recently relocated to Wagga Wagga as a tree change. Leadlighting has been the perfect marriage of my interests in architecture, art, colour and design, and of course the medium of glass. My work has been largely architectural glasswork up until recently. My new home here has re–ignited my dreams of combining stained glass with wrought iron in sculptor when we found an old iron frame from an upright piano on our land. All I could see was how amazing it would be it filled with glass as a garden installation. I am venturing into working with different mediums such as ceramics, found objects, rock, metal, natural wood and crystals combined with stained glass as hanging and static sculptures. I’m presently working on incorporating ceramic features into stained glass projects, stained glass hangings focusing on abstract and old style motifs, and insects, birds, animals and nature that have an ad–hoc and brightly coloured stained glass feature incorporated into them, where the accent is on the bright colours of the glass rather than the subject. From there I will expand these ideas into larger garden sculptures utilizing found objects, rock, iron and timber. I am situated about 20 minutes out of Wagga in the Olympic Highway and 10 minutes from Junee. Look for the Wagga Art Trail Banner on the corned of Yathella Rd and turn left off the Highway from Wagga, and right from Junee. Our property is the first lane on the right, and signposted for the Wagga Art Trail. The studio is open from 10 am to 4pm, Saturday and Sunday, with demonstrations of leadlighting, refreshments and pieces for sale. Please note; Yathella Rd is also known as ‘Bronte Lane’ on GPS devices.

Craig Couzens Print Studio

Craig Couzens Print Studio

Since retirement I have been able to follow my interest in Printmaking. After six years study at TAFE Wagga I graduated in 2015 at Distinction level from the Advance Diploma - Printmaking. In the last year I have been able to consolidate my learning through the Artist in Residence process. This has given additional confidence toward placing my work in front of the public. My art will normally exhibit a mildly surreal representation of my world. Dependent on the materials that best suit representation, the work may be painted, drawn or printed. It may interest you to know that artists in the fourteenth century were the starting point for modern printmaking. Unfortunately, the public concept of the generic term ‘Print’ usually can mean – anything from a hand printed on a cave wall, to near photographic likenesses of artists’ work, screen-prints, or to posters. Unlike the mass-produced copies seen in the market place, limited edition prints are original works. Rather than the result of a chemical reaction on a light sensitive surface, the individually formed images are coated with pigment and then delivered to the paper. After the plate is put through a press the formed image will show on the heavy paper. The prints that I display may be from the Relief Print process. Here my original design is cut into a board such as linotile or wood panel. The actual image is recovered from the pigment held on the surface of the plate. If it is an Intaglio / aquatint print then an image is scratched or acid-etched onto a metal plate. It is then inked up with (usually) an oil-based product, and rolled through a press. This image is printed from the ink held in the indentations. I live a life where I experience the adventure of experimentation and the subsequent surprises. I hope that you will join me as you travel from artist to artist on the Artist Trail. To actually see the artist at work may help you to understand the complexity, and length of time taken to product each individual print.
