Kory Dollar is the owner of Marvelous Mosaic; she is a fine artist, specializing in stained glass mosaics particularly glass on glass or GOG. Kory is intrigued by glass and its dimensional effects it can produce by illumination; she uses light, reflection, and negative space to create her mosaics. She up-cycles wood framed windows and creates beautiful mosaic sun-catchers or privacy screens that can be hung in a window or on a covered patio. Kory also accepts custom orders for large mosaic murals, backsplashes, and fireplaces. She specializes in flowers, blossom trees, nautical, mandalas, and goddesses. Kory’s passion for creating comes from nature and nurture. Kory grew up with an artistically inclined family always encouraging her to use self-expression as a form of mediation. From a very young age, she has had practice working in many mediums; wood, stained glass, clay, ink, acrylic, and watercolor. Kory’s inspiration for her mosaics comes from design, texture, and color of the stained glass itself. She is motivated to leave a healthy artistic footprint behind for her children; she is driven by her need to artistically express feelings, desires, and visions. There are natural patterns in the glass that artistically energize her creative since of style, to generate movement in the piece. If you study her mosaics you will find all the glass is hand cut using a freestyle method she developed. She cuts most of her pieces with wheeled nippers, a glass scorer, and running pliers.
