Heart Mosaic Art at Emerald C Gallery, a Beautiful Valentine Craft!

I had the pleasure of creating a beautiful Heart Mosaic piece at Emerald C Gallery
in Coronado last Saturday.  

I participated in a wonderful mosaic class conducted by Jenna Raskin Moreines.  We were 
taken through the entire process of mosaic making with Jenna from types of backing material, glue based on the type of backing to selecting the beautiful bits and pieces of glass and tile for the design and the placement of each piece to finishing of your design with grout.

There were so many different kinds of glass and objects d'arte it was hard to choose!  I selected an eclectic approach with iridescent glass and mirrored pieces and written words.  My scheme reflected my beautiful home, Imperial Beach, and my love for my friends.

I had such a marvelous time working with creative people and seeing each mosaic come together.  It was a perfect escape from a hectic week and I will certainly make it a point of attending many more of the special activities at Emerald C Gallery and highly recommend visiting them for a very exciting view of all the incomparable displays of creativity by local artisans of all genres.
