The designs you will see in the
Gallery Tour are just a sampling of the work from
my studio. Each mosaic I produce is a fine handcrafted
original. Studio materials include opaque stained glass,
mirrored glass, vintage porcelain, and other distinctive
bits and pieces I've collected.
Tiles (called tesserae) are cut individually, using
traditional glass-cutting tools, then painstakingly fitted
together to achieve a luminous interplay of color, shape,
pattern, and texture. Some pieces make use of furniture
or functional objects discovered at flea markets and yard
sales. The very process of creating a mosaic, and the
endless variations that occur naturally within in the
materials used, guarantee that each work is unique.
