I specialize in creating custom mosaics and love working with my clients to create pieces that they love!
Custom mosaic mirrors are a fun and unique way to express your personal style. They make a great addition to any room's decor. Each mirror is one of a kind, customized to enhance your personal space.

Each mirror is created with consideration for your unique style and home design.
I begin the process by working with you to determine the pattern, size, and colors of the mirror. Custom colors are hand selected for your approval.
After approval, I begin to create your custom mosaic. The first steps include priming the wood.
The next step in the process is to create the custom mosaic border. The front and sides of the piece are both covered in mosaic tiles so that no matter what angle you see, you will see mosaic glass.
When creating the mosaic pattern, I use stained glass, Italian glass smalti (a thick opaque glass that is textured and imported from Italy), or a mix of both. When using Italian smalti, it is adhered with mortar (a blend of cement and finely graded sand) that creates a strong bond and does not receive any grout. This is a technique I learned while studying with the mosaic masters at Orsoni in Venice, Italy. If the piece is created in only stained glass, after all the tiles are glued and dried, the piece receives a layer of grout and the final hardware is installed.
