Elissa Cardamone

Elissa relocated from the Jersey Shore to Gulfport in 2006 where she currently resides and her studio is located. While in Jersey, she apprenticed in a local shop that specialized in the repair and restoration of antique stained glass windows. Having perfected old world leading style, she gained inspiration from the classical curves in the Victorian style to create an original series of abstract female images in glass.  Most of her works incorporate antique faceted jewels and repurposed slag glass taken from salvaged church panels. Some fun works place depression glass plates into leaded glass panels, and overlay other items onto the glass using a technique known as plating.
