MOSAIC and JIGSAW Wall Art
My Jigsaw wall art uses dichroic glass to create a jigsaw puzzle piece which is then attached to a brushed stainless steel wall plate. The largest of the ones pictured here are 16×20″, the smallest, 8×8″. I combine my popular Jazz series evoking city skylines with my fun jigsaw series. The result? Mosaic – whimsical dichroic wall art that will show you something different every time you look at it. Very detailed with a variety of dichroic elements. Vertical stainless steel backing plate has a sturdy hanger built in.
JAZZ Wall Art
My original Jazz Seasons quad wall art:
My Jazz wall art are created by selecting and arranging many different pieces of dichroic glass on a black glass base, then embellishing with various types of accessory glass – squiggles, water jet cut objects, stars, murrini, noodles, dots…selecting from a large stash of glass items I have in the studio. The fused glass piece is then mounted on framing glass, matted in a complimentary color and framed in a 9×12 black aluminum frame. Since the piece is “tack” fused rather than full fused, it retains a texture and depth that you won’t be able to keep from touching. Go ahead – it’s ok. Glass is very tactile – it loves to be touched.

The Following photos were taken in my studio. They don’t hold a candle to the above professional photos. But I hope you can get the idea. I assure you they are as beautiful as the ones above in real life.
Dichroic Patchwork Quilt Stars
In a prior era, I made patchwork quilt pillows. It wasn’t until well into my glass era that I discovered that I was using the exact same skills in working with glass as I did with calico. I was combining color, pastern and texture to produce a visually pleasing mosaic.
Thus were born my dichroic glass stars. Same four seasons as my Jazz series; winter, spring, summer & autumn colors framed with complimentary colored aluminum frames. Each piece is 6″ square.
Now, I’m finishing my dichroic stars in brushed stainless steel.
