Mosaic Art for Home and Garden
Three years ago I retired from the world of teaching. I was finally free to pursue my lifelong interest in art...specifically mosaic art. I began experimenting. Using locally sourced rocks, I created designs on them using stained glass, and other materials. I was very happy with the outcome! This became my Garden Art.
Not long after my first foray into this exciting new facet of my life, I felt the need to take it further...to create designs with more details. I made a glass-on-glass mosaic on an old window given to me by a friend. And just like that...my new career came sharply into focus! Soon I had a great collection of vintage windows, and I was on my way! I use stained glass for all of my projects, whether I'm working on windows, picture frames, rocks, or vintage oars. I often incorporate other material into my art...clay, tiles, and metal embellishments, for example. My themes have a definite Cape Cod flavor...lighthouses, fish, and seaside florals to name a few. Look me up on Facebook...LydieBug Mosaics. (Named after my first grandchild...Lydia.)
