Birds & Flowers Bathroom
Birds & Flowers Bathroom Dimensions: approximately 7’ 4” wide x 4’ 2” high
Medium: Vitreous glass tile, stained glass, marble gems, millifiori, fused glass
Inspiration: Being seated in a lovely garden surrounded by a tranquil blue sky and chirping birds. Stepping out of the shower into a garden. Incorporating the indoor/outdoor space.
Martini Glass Garden Stepping Stones
Martini Glass Garden Stepping Stones I made these garden stepping stones out of 12" by 12" clay floor tiles. If you have six or more in your garden you can play “martini hopscotch” or “martini twister” with your friends.
Koi Planter
Koi Planter Hand cut stained glass glued and grouted to a clay flower pot with dimensions of approximately 12" in diameter by 11" high. Koi fish are another favorite motif of mine. I think several fish as a border on a fountain, swimming pool or bathroom wall border would look really beautiful.
Greek Key Black Cat Flower Pot
Greek Key Black Cat Flower Pot Flower pot with dimensions of approximately 12" in diameter and 11" high. I could see the cat motif enlarged and repeated on a garden wall!
Dragonfly Garden Gazing Balls
Dragonfly Garden Gazing Balls The garden gazing balls came to be as a recycling project after we replaced the light fixtures in our mid century house. The balls are actually glass light fixture globes which are much lighter weight than using an old bowling ball for a base. Several of these lit up at night with small candles in a garden look really cool!

Iris & Dragonfly Panel - Detail
Iris & Dragonfly Panel - Detail Dimensions: 3’ wide x 3’ high
Medium: vitreous glass tile, stained glass, marble gems, hand-made fused glass gems
Inspiration: Created for a homeowner’s kitchen remodel project. Iris flowers were her wedding flowers and she, like me, loves the symbolism of the dragonfly – seize the moment because life is short. This panel will be mounted above the kitchen’s island and will provide a color accent to a predominantly white kitchen.

Vegetable backsplash with Guilloche border
Vegetable backsplash with Guilloche border Dimensions: Approximately 18” wide x 36” high
Medium: vitreous glass tile, stained glass, marble gems
Inspiration: Make me happy when I am in my kitchen cooking. I also wanted to use a traditional “Guilloche” border. In this instance I incorporated the colors used in the peppers and tomato in the border. The walls of the kitchen are painted a warm ochre color to further enhance the mosaic.

Soul of the Sun Floor
Soul of the Sun Floor Dimensions: Approximately 11’ 5” long x 7’ 5” wide
Medium: Vitreous glass tile, stained glass, millefiori, glass gems
Inspiration: Roman floors – I started with a traditional Greek key border and then filled the center with 2 sun emblemata and stylized flowers. A slice of blue sky emerges from the center. The background, to create texture, is “opus circumactum”. Petal was the color used for the opus circumactum because it was a warmer color whereas white would have been too stark.
