ABOUT THE ARTIST:
For me, making art is a form of magic. The process of breaking down large sheets of glass, finding that perfect glass for each small piece, that just right hue, level of transparency and surface texture that will speak to what I’m trying to say with this glass “brush stroke.” In mosaic, there is a joy and a challenge, finding the perfect hue, or cutting the perfect shape and size tesserae to create that feeling. The overall theme of my artwork is a resolute celebration of this life; of our world, both our own human creations and of natural things. Mosaic carries a message of wonder, how the small parts coalesce into a whole universe.
I design and create both large, public, glass mosaic murals and small fine art work. My work is part of city and state art collections and has been represented in galleries and shown in museum venues. I live with my family in the Pacific Northwest, in a bucolic small town surrounded by water and mountains. I also travel as much as possible and am constantly inspired by the world around me. I am also an oil painter and will typically create a painted work as a study for a mosaic fine art piece. I am mainly self-taught and have spent my life learning and looking at the world with an artist’s eye. Sandra Bryant www.showcasemosaics.com
