Mosaic Art

Art created with Mosaics

The Artist's description of her work:
"My work utilizes the innate opulence of mosaic materials – 24k gold smalti, marble, semi-precious stones – to embellish sculptural forms in unexpected ways.  The discovery of dentalia shells inspired the densly-packed and fragile under skirt.
La Corrente, (The Current in Italian) is about beauty amidst destruction.  The sea kelp adorning her gown swirls in the strong gulf currents.  Giant Asian Sea Kelp is an invasive species threatening the balance of plant and marine life in the region.   While man overtly destroys the gulf with oil, pollution and fertilizer runoff, another destructive force creeps in with the current."

Thank you, Henry. In order to show my art, you must have a great photographer who knows how to capture the work in a great light: Stacy Bratton.

Thank you for sharing the mosaic love.

Stunning work. I see your avatar photo - is that the shirt of the San Francisco skyline I saw in the MAN magazine? Amazing stuff.
