Glass Mosaic

For me there is an affinity with the medium of glass mosaic.  In the translation of a painting or drawing it is possible to achieve nuance and painterliness and a richness of color. Surfaces may catch the light with jagged edges or be smooth for public spaces. 
Mosaics may be created for interior or exterior spaces. A painstaking process, the medium endures over time.  Indeed, the tradition connects us to the ancient world.
