I am a self taught mosaic artist. My inspiration
came from my first trip to Barcelona in 1977. Being exposed to the
many mosaic works by Antonio Gaudi all over the city, especially
the bench at Park Guell, I returned home to begin creating my own
designs. My materials come from many sources. I use commercial ceramic
tile, dishes, glass, costume jewelry and anything else that catches
This particular mirror is one of my earlier works. I feel it demonstrates
very well the Gaudinian influence in my artwork. The actual piece
of mirror got its shape when it fell off the wall and broke into
several pieces. The outer mosaic area is made up of broken dishes,
jewelry, beads and glass. The curved wires with glass beads enhance
the piece's unique character.
I am so grateful for the original spark that was ignited in me
magnificent works of Mr. Gaudi.
