Transparent glass comes alive in a glass-on-glass mosaic, and it’s easier than traditional stained glass. The entire mosaic gets attached to clear, double-strength glass with a built-in hanger, as if there is nothing underneath. Choose from a vast spectrum of colored glass and piece together a beautiful window insert. Cutting glass, adhering pieces to the glass substrate using clear silicone and grouting will be skillfully taught to fully understand this ancient method. Whether your subject is the mountains, the sea or something abstract, your window mosaic will capture daylight beautifully.
Mark Brody has been a working artist since graduating from Lewis and Clark College with degrees in art and education. He has taught mosaic and created installations with students in Portland Public Schools for sixteen years. What Mark finds fascinating about mosaic is how the completion of each new project is a transforming and enriching experience. The laying of the tiles is a meditative process of finding the proper shape for pattern, symmetry and design. Mark has compiled many of these ideas and techniques into his new how-to book on mosaic: Mosaic Garden Projects, published by Timber Press.
