Shards of Glass
Updated: Oct 4, 2019
While many regard broken glass and objects as useless and things to be thrown away, I see in them beauty and how they can be re-imagined and made whole again.
I first became fascinated by mosaics on a trip with my oldest sister, Kathee, to Fredericksburg, Texas. We walked into an art gallery and were mesmerized by the works of the late artist, Suzan Germond. While studying her creations, I came to the conclusion that I was also capable of creating mosaics. How did I know that? I'm not sure! But, I couldn't wait to try my hand at my newly-found passion.
I started off with small projects: flower pots, cross wall-hangings, and vases. Then, I moved on to larger and more intricate projects, including a whimsical vanity desk and stool for a little girl and the following wall hanging of an under-the-ocean scene.
As you can imagine, with my building, baking, and job as an educator, the time I've been able to devote to mosaics has been minimal. I'm hoping for that to change very soon.
Remember, kindness has the power to change the world!
