This mosaic was made during a 4-day workshop with Verdiano Marzi, at the Chicago Mosaic School. The school is one of the premier mosaic schools in the world. Along with local, renowned mosaic artists, the school offers intensive workshops with world-famous mosaic masters.
And this mosaic keeps changing its name… right now it wants to be called Night and Day… we’ll see how long it keeps that name.
I make things because my demons won't give me any peace until I make something for us – mosaics, sculpture, drawings, books, stickers, furniture, tools...
I sell some of what I make, sometimes... when I can let go of it.
Often the work I sell is work created especially for a person. Commissions, pieces created as a collaboration between us, something that takes shape in our minds during a number of conversations, eventually making its way out into the physical world. Other times people just see something I've made and want to have it.
Books and stickers I just make, in large numbers. People buy them if they like them.
