Vases & Frames
Typically, I like to work large. Maybe because I’m a tall, fairly large woman. Maybe because I’m far-sighted. I don’t know, but I do. But sometimes it’s fun to work small so I’ve begun making some pieces that, although are actually more time consuming for me to make, are easier for people to absorb into their lives.
Vases and picture frames work well for these purposes. As with all my mosaics, the pieces are generally upcycled yard sale or thrift store finds. I use reclaimed dishware; marbles; broken, discarded ceramic tile; even bits of jewlery and pebbles in my work. In all cases, they are small efforts to make the world a little more beautiful with mosaics.
