Artist Statement -

For us, mosaic is a form of magic. The process of breaking down large sheets of glass, finding that perfect glass for each small piece, that just right hue, level of transparency and surface texture that will speak to what I’m trying to say with this glass “brush stroke.” The medium is always a joy and a challenge, cutting the perfect shape and size tesserae to create that feeling. The overall theme of our artwork is a resolute celebration of this life of our world, both our own creations and of natural things. Mosaic carries a message of wonder, not only in the monuments and architecture of our surroundings, but also of the hope intrinsic in this celebration

Carl and Sandra Bryant, a self-educated artist team, began glass mosaic work in 2001 after many years of oil painting and creating hand made tile. Mosaics are graffiti resistant, versatile and can be applied to so many dimensions. As a mosaic artist team, we collaborate on each design including material selection, fabrication and installation of all our projects.
