Artist Statement: "From an early age; my fascination with all things glass began with collecting antique bottles and sea glass. My work now is an expression of that fascination with all things glass. With "glass-on-glass' mosaics; the light transmits through glass and its varying translucence to create a constantly changing piece. It is this change that I am continually working towards with my projects. In the medium of mosaics; I enjoy the challenge of creating precise imagery using a largely imprecise process by restricting myself to using basic glass cutting tools. Photographs are often inspiration and guidance for my imagery. Cutting; selecting; and adhering each individual piece to the substrate is akin to putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Focusing largely on themes of nature; I choose my subjects from my natural environment (often native animals; plants; and landscapes). There is a balance between the realistic representation of the subject and the play of color; lighting; and texture with my work." ~ Lauren Richeson
