Glass on Glass Abstract
....featuring your choice of stained glass color for inspiration....
Phoenix Center for the Arts
Phoenix, AZ


 



Great way to learn if unfamiliar with mosaics....We begin our journey on a piece of clear glass that measures 7" X 14", framed with zinc and ready to hang. From there we will cut pieces of stained glass for our focal points and weave colorful glass tiles in between. Creating on glass allows light to enter from behind our art giving a different dimension than if it were on backer board. Always a great learning event, enjoy understanding techniques and color relationships as we work to complete our mosaic panel
