New Zealand Mosaic Art

Raewyn Beaver

I have been involved in the Mosaic Art world for 17 – going on 18 years now.

My favourite medium to work with is stained glass.  I love the challenge of cutting shapes and using the textures and colours in the glass to make my art works.  Playing with glass is fun!!

Of recent times I have suddenly discovered a real interest in the traditional Romanesque style mosaics from yester-year.  That will be my next challenge – especially sourcing the different coloured stone to work with. My inspiration for this style comes from visiting a local museum that had an ancient mosaic inlaid in a floor. The simplicity and yet complexity of the piece fascinated me. And it was all made with just a few shades of stone. Will be an interesting journey I am picking.
