STRIGI MOSAIC CARVED reflects a stage of evolution in my newest work. combining various elements of mosaic that give me the bold motion of the sweeping lines side by side with the more painterly result of more detailed mosaic elements. The elements of the patterns are geometric and grid-like when I begin the process, but the result is anything but. The patterning is fashioned from mosaic elements laid out to accentuate the interaction of colors as you look into and through. The many tiles that make up the mosaic elements are drawn into long pieces, fused and re drawn multiple times to achieve this level of detail. The mosaic itself is then fused in the heat of the glassblowing furnace, sculpted and blown into shape. Before I begin shaping the piece there is a phase of extensive manipulation of the mosaic during the glassblowing process. Complex patterning and overlay of pattern and texture along with semi metallic elements interact in different ways depending on the light, and you will be delighted to see how the interactions shift and change through the changing light of the day.
