About

Passionate About Mosaic Mirrors...

A little under a decade ago I purchased a mosaic art how-to book and started to teach myself an ancient art form that would quickly transform my entire life. After much practice, trial-and-error, and countless mosaic projects of all sizes, mediums, and shapes I eventually settled in on creating my favorite mosaic creation: mirrors.

Creating a quality mosaic mirror is no easy task and for this reason I specialize in just mosaic mirrors, that's it. As with most pursuits in this world, if you're going to do something right then you have to pay attention to the details.

The first important detail in my process is constructing a high quality mirror frame that will serve as a sturdy base for the mosaic materials and design. Utilizing a table saw, plunge router, and other carpentry tools each frame is cut to the proper size out of 3/4" thick medium density fiberboard. After applying a primer/sealer to the frame I'm ready to begin the fun stuff.

Of course when I say fun you have to realize that it takes a somewhat deranged person to enjoy placing hundreds of small pieces of material into a mosaic design (just ask my wife). Obviously I try to look past any perceived neurosis in this regard and just enjoy this painstaking yet wonderfully fulfilling mosaic process. The satisfaction I derive from seeing all of the pieces arranged perfectly into a cohesive design is beyond words.

I truly am grateful to all of the people out there in this big, wide world who also derive pleasure from seeing my custom mosaic mirror creations so much that they will actually choose to put them in their homes, studios, condos, offices, castles, cottages, bungalows and wherever else they hang mirrors. For me this is the greatest compliment and I truly am thankful to each and every one of my clients for enabling me to do what I love each and every day.

NEW! In an effort to reduce waste and offer new and unique mosaic artwork pieces I am now creating and selling mosaic mandalas. From the construction of my round mosaic mirror frames I end up with lots of leftover round wood bases that are too small to make more mirrors from. I have begun using these leftover wood pieces along with scrap/leftover mosaic tile and stained glass to create beautiful mosaic mandalas.

Frequently asked questions

ARE FREE MATERIAL SAMPLES AVAILABLE?

Samples of materials used to create mosaic designs in my Etsy store are always available as well as a wide variety of custom options. Samples are available upon request for free and are highly recommended since exact color representation can vary depending on electronic screen variances and settings. To request samples send me a message with your mailing address and any pertinent information regarding designs and colors you're interested in.

HOW DO I HANG YOUR MIRRORS?

Necessary hardware for hanging all mosaic mirrors is provided with purchase. Typically hanging wire is installed on the back of all mirror frames and a separate drywall anchor/screw combination is included along with instructions. Typically no special tools are needed for installation other than a Phillips screwdriver. All hanging hardware is rated to hold at least double the weight of the actual mosaic mirror for safety and security. NOTE: When purchasing a rectangular mirror frame customers should indicate their preferred hanging orientation for mounting purposes (either portrait/vertical or landscape/horizontal).

HOW ARE YOUR MIRRORS CONSTRUCTED?

My mosaic mirror frames are constructed using a high quality three piece construction design. Each mirror consists of the actual mirror frame, center glass mirror, and protective backing material. The end result is a strong, sturdy, and lightweight mosaic mirror. Center glass mirrors are replaceable if ever necessary.

HOW MUCH DO YOUR MIRRORS WEIGH?

The overall weight of one of my mosaic mirrors can vary depending on a variety of factors. If you'd like an estimate of mirror weight for a specific mirror design please send me a message along with your desired dimensions of the mirror design you are interested in. Typically overall mirror weight is not a huge concern since I utilize lightweight construction methods and provide all necessary hanging hardware rated for at least double the mirror's final weight.

HOW ARE YOUR MIRRORS SIZED?

The listed size options available for purchase always refer to the overall size of the mirror from frame edge to edge. Sizing for the actual center glass mirror is also listed under the MIRROR SPECIFICATIONS heading for all mirror listings as is the width of the mosaic frame border design. The typical width of mosaic frame border designs ranges from 2-5/8" to 5". Custom frame border widths are available and overall mirror dimensions can also be customized to suit your tastes and needs.
