A puzzle, a meditation, a passion.
I have always loved mosaics. I will invariably stop and stare in amazement at each piece. The Hearst Castle. The Herman hospital in Houston, TX. The NYC subway. I would keep thinking about them. The intricacy, the design, the ability of a million tiny things to come together so haphazardly, and so not haphazardly, to create something far more singular and whole. Eventually, I tried my hand at it, fell in love with the process, and over the past 9 years have been daydreaming the next endeavor and refining a technique of my own. Each piece is it's own fun challenge.
Neitzche once said, 'You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.' In between having a million other things to do and always being on the go, the time I get to lock myself away with broken glass is as precious as it is therapeutic. I don't start with a design, rather, I start with a color scheme and build one element at a time. Sometimes I finish pieces in weeks, others may take many months.
I hope you enjoy perusing my shop as much as I enjoyed making them!
