Sandstone, slate, mica muscovite, pyrite chips, abalone flakes and mortar.
Working with stone and glass is transforming. The pieces are broken, change shape, fit together, then made whole again - sometimes in unexpected ways. It is important to me in our 'throw-away' culture to reinvent discarded items or scrap glass into sacred art formed in prayer.
My mosaics range from abstract sculpture and landscapes to liturgical wall hangings and commissioned works. They allow me to connect my art to my faith. I try to express some of my wonder at creation and the Creator in each piece.
Trappist monk Thomas Merton wrote, “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” When looking at my work, I hope you find your own meaning. artist Kathy Thaden
