Mosaics is the art of assembling stone, or hand-cut glass, into tiles and various artistic shapes for the adornment of floors, walls, sculpture; and to cover shapes, too, cut out of various substrates such as wood. Even if not truly familiar with mosaics, most people are aware of the stunning floors of the Roman Empire, and of course many modern kitchen backsplashes and showers feature mosaic accents.
Mosaics is an artistic discipline I always admired, and twelve years ago I decided to try my hand at it. Over time I came to specialize in two forms of mosaics: plates, saucers, and platters; and also mosaic pendants. Making mosaic artwork is a highly time- and labor-intensive discipline, and thus expensive, but well worth the effort.
Plate samples: Two were commissioned, and two are in the artist's collection.
