Dawn Marie Zimmerman Mosaic Gallery

My Mosaic Journey began by adapting traditional American patchwork quilt patterns using stained glass. I have traveled away from the direct interpretation of these designs onto a new path using geometric relationships, color explorations, and images from my daily life as primary inspiration. I have expanded my palette of materials to include glass tile, ceramic tile, unglazed porcelain, precious stones, and found objects.
I practice both the direct and indirect methods of mosaic. Each sheet of stained glass used is in its own right, a handmade work of art. For this reason, color, opacity, pattern and texture may all vary from one item to another when parts of the same sheet of glass is used. I hand cut all stained glass and tile material and hand blend all cement and mortar colors making each work truly unique.
