BLOOM is one line in a new series of Mosaic Elements, 8″ x 8″ hand-cut glass art pieces. Any space can be transformed with shimmering glass Mosaic Elements. In BLOOM a meandering path of gleaming white gold draws the viewer into a flourishing garden.

The vast decaying manmade settings of the modern ruins images highlight the intention of the art pieces: to offer a moment of surprise and discovery, finding unexpected points of beauty in a hard environment. Urban living requires new ways of encountering beauty and connecting with nature, critical to quality of life. These compositions of Mosaic Elements in modern ruins take me back to my original inspiration for working with glass found in the still-captivating fragments of ancient mosaics enduring from antiquity.

Whether used as art pieces or permanently installed on a backsplash or fireplace, Mosaic Elements are a new way to create a visual feature.
