“The excitement I feel when I walk by a shimmering glass mosaic…when the light changes, the feeling changes- it’s living glass. It’s beautiful, and one of the most satisfying materials to work with. I create wall treatments from recycled window glass that would otherwise end up in a landfill, and I am always amazed at the depth, ever-changing reflective quality, and luminosity of the glass. Grouting a glass mosaic becomes a delicious dessert as I see the finished piece, “ready to eat.” Modern, slick, subtle, refined, minimalistic, rustic…I’m floored by the design direction this discarded material can take.”
