The concept of taking an item that is "broken"and with it creating something
even more beautiful has great symbolism for me.
I enjoy working with the luminous properties of different types of glass, which I obtain from sources as varied as specialty glass factories and glass blowing studios, to shards
recycled from stained glass artists and local estate sales.
Each mosaic is unique, and is painstakingly created in a meticulous process in which different art mediums, industrial strength epoxies, glass, colored grout, and materials such as jewels,
beads, mirror, metal, stone, shells and ceramics may become part of a design created on a
cementitious, glass or stone substrate. Every fragment placed into the design
builds upon the next, affecting and changing the overall composition.
I use clear & stained glass of different types & thicknesses (plate, tempered, textured, frosted)
which are often layered, stacked, or set on edge, drawing the eye in and giving each piece
a depth and 3-dimensional quality not found in traditional mosaic.
Mosaics are versatile, durable and weatherproof, and can be worked into 3-dimensional sculptural works as well as applied to walls, floors, and exteriors. Please visit the "Commissions" page to learn more about having a one-of-a kind piece created just for you!
