It is really remarkable that I began creating stained glass mosaics, given that I hate sharp object and have a fear of being cut. But I love the mystery and exploration of mosaics. It is like fitting a puzzle together; you cut glass and work to find the right fit.
I started out making stained glass mosaics, mounted on cement board and grouted with sanded grout. I sometimes incorporate other materials and occasionally worked in 3-D on flexbond coated Styrofoam.
However, I recently started working with clay and a relief style of mosaics on Wediboard, which is a Styrofoam type board cover with thin set. These incorporate design pieces surrounded by background tiles. My goal is to have a panel on every part of my backyard wall.
