OlveraDesignMosaic's Shop Announcement

Self-taught artist Hector Olvera, grew up in Guadalajara, Mexico interested mathematics and engineering. He worked as a professional industrial electrician for years before realizing his passion for mosaics. It is the processes of cutting large sheets of glass into extremely small pieces into precise but simplistic geometric design made from local materials that is fascinating and inspires the creation of his mosaics.

Emerging artist Stephanie Roman-Olvera grew up in Traverse City, Michigan and moved to the Seattle area over a decade ago. In her youth, she studied watercolor painting under Carolynn Scott Risk at Northwestern Michigan College and has a Bachelor degree in Landscape Architecture from University of Washington. Currently she collaborates with Hector Olvera as a stained mosaic artist in their company Olvera Design and independently designs landscapes.

As an evolving artist, Stephanie is exploring the integration of art in the natural landscape. She believes art is a process; it should not be just placed in a space to view, rather re¬flect and unfold in the moment with the materials to educate and create unique experiences.

Material & Process
Our stained glass mosaic mirrors are not created from broken or purchased pieces but painstakingly hand cut glass from 3 x 5 sheets with vibrant colors to create unique mirrors. We design a wood base to mount the small pieces of glass and beveled mirror in many different lengths, heights and widths to inspire creative designs.

If you have questions about the mirrors or custom orders please e-mail us romanolvera [!at] msn.com. Also check out our website olveradesign.com
