New Zealand Mosaic Art

Janet Sanders

I am a hobby mosaic artist and I enjoy creating glittering and shining pictures from glass and ceramic tiles. I love the play of light on the glass; it literally glitters in the sun, so gorgeous.

It is a relatively new interest for me and one that is very absorbing and captivating. This type of art work is interesting because not every piece is perfect and as a consequence no two art pieces are created the same.

My designs tend to be quirky and simplistic with inspiration coming from the traditional subjects from nature such as flowers, birds, etc.

I like boarders utilising ball chain and glass seed beads and I like to incorporate a central detail such as a heart or flower etc. to create a focal point of interest or a pop of contrasting colour. I most love symmetry of design.

But the most rewarding thing is when someone else enjoys the art work.
