Announcement   Thank you for taking a look at some of my work! I hand cut all of my stained glass, and each mosaic is made with lots of thought, love, and time. I was honored to be asked to display my work at the Somerville Museum's Contemporary Mosaic exhibit, and have done mosaic installations at the Boston Children's Hospital & The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital. The installation at Boston Children's Hospital was a 5-story tree house mural. You can read all about it here, or on my website:

To see more of my work, see shows I'm doing, and read up on current cool projects, head over to my website: http://www.mandolinmosaics.com

The mosaic work I've done in my kitchen (a penny floor mosaic!) has recently been featured on the cover of the Portland Press Herald's Home & Garden Addition:

About

One of a Kind Mixed Media Mosaics

Simply put, I love glass. I love the textures, variety of colors, shapes, sizes, reflections, even the sound it makes when I’m scoring and cutting it. I always welcome inquiries regarding commissions, and both public or private mosaic installations.

I'm a self-taught mosaic artist... to see my full biography, you can over to my website here: http://www.mandolinmosaics.com

While I am meticulous in my technique, I try very hard to keep my work spontaneous. I may do a rough sketch of the main subject, but I never plan the placement of glass ahead of time. Throughout the creation process, I try to keep myself submerged in the moment of my initial inspiration, whether it be through sounds, smells, images, or returning to a specific location over and over again. My goal in working this way is to keep each mosaic alive & natural. Every piece of glass is put into place with purpose, intent, joy, love, and inspiration behind it.

Thank you for stopping by my shop!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
I accept paypal or personal checks for payment. Should you want to send me a personal check, I will ship your item when I receive your payment & the funds have cleared.

For all custom orders, 50% payment is due upon ordering, and the additional 50% is due upon completion. There will be no refunds on your initial 50% payment should you decide not to purchase your piece.

If you purchase a piece that is hanging in a gallery or other space (I will be clear of that in the listing), I will let you know when it is available. - when the gallery show is over. Please contact me about availability before purchasing. If you purchase the piece without contacting me first, there will be no refund if you are not ok with the timing of shipping.
Shipping
Shipping of these pieces can get expensive, due to the dimensions, and double boxing for safety. My main goal is to have everything safely arrive to you. If I have listed a shipping amount that turns out to be too high, I'll refund you the difference.

International Buyers:
International customers have to pay customs & taxes when your pieces arrive at your door. You should look into those fees before you order, just so you have no surprises when your box arrives. :)

I will ship anywhere in the world, so if you are outside of the United States, just ask me about shipping costs! - It's likely not as much as you're thinking it would be. :) All shipping is done through UPS, and therefore, all items will have a tracking number

All shipping is done through UPS, as I do not have a US Post Office in my town. :) So, all items will have a tracking number.

I have never had a piece break during shipping. If it ever happens, your refund will come from UPS via the shipping insurance on your piece. Therefor, it will take time & completion of all necessary UPS paperwork to have the insurance payment made to you.

I live in Maine, so if you are ordering mosaics during the winter months, there will be times that I get snowed in, so shipping times are approximate. Within 1-3 days, we are generally all dug out.... so please allow a 1-3 day window for shipping. If you need something fast, please let me know that. If you are willing to pay the extra cost for 1 or 2 day UPS shipping, then I will gladly ship it that way. :) Otherwise, items generally are shipping UPS Ground, with a tracking number.
Refunds and Exchanges
Pieces over $100 will have no refunds. Pieces under $100 will be on a per-person basis. If a return is agreed upon, the customer is responsible for all shipping costs back to me, including insurance on the piece. No refunds will be given if a piece arrives back to me broken.

For all custom orders, 50% payment is due upon ordering, and the additional 50% is due upon completion. There will be no refunds on your initial 50% payment should you decide not to purchase your piece.

I have never had a piece break during shipping. If it ever happens, your refund will come from UPS via the shipping insurance on your piece. Therefor, it will take time & completion of all necessary UPS paperwork to have the insurance payment made to you. If you would like me to try to repair your piece, I will do my best to do so. All shipping costs, and shipping insurance, will be the responsibility of the buyer. Again, if your piece arrives broken, your refund will be coming from UPS, and not from me, so keep all of your paperwork!
Additional policies and FAQs
Please use common sense with these and all glass mosaic art. They are created with broken and cut glass... so do not run your hands along the edges of the piece, and use care when feeling any part of your mosaic. I do my best to ensure that you can run your hands freely over your mosaic, but edges always need to be handled with extreme care.
