The three day workshop will be a combination of lecture/slideshow, discussion, Q&A, demos, and hands-on instruction. We will focus on Glass on Glass (GOG) application, using the direct method to create a stimulating optical effect. Kory will demo several unique cuts she uses in her roosters and sunflowers, using three tools, nippers, a scoring tool, and running pliers. During this process, you will learn how cut strips to patternize your glass into flowers while maximizing your glass. Kory will demonstrate and discuss a specific nipping style /technique, Glass Shaving® to create a crisp clean edge, using only wheeled nippers to cut the circles. The class will explore how to create movement, in the tail feathers suing long slender cuts.  Additional topics covered include: precision cutting, committing to a design, selecting a color pallet, varying opacity, Randomization Method®, balance and composition, creating a one-of-a-kind designs, and incorporating found and unusual items. Kory will discuss grout bleed, adhesives, grout additives, and provide tips and tricks to grouting. Mac glue will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring additional unique items such as broken jewelry, beads, and tesserae to embellish your mosaic.

There will be a grout demonstration on Sunday. Students are welcome to grout if they have completed the project and glue has dried. If projects are not completed, or dried by 12 pm then a grout package will be available to take home for optional grouting.

Kory notes that she does not strive for perfection; “the art of art is the imperfections.” She says, “It is my goal that I will simplify the process enough to give you ‘artistic freedom without self doubt’. I strive to build confidence in these classes. I do not teach from a pattern, I teach to use your sketch as only a guideline; you are not restricted to the pattern. I will assist you in creating a balanced one-of-a-kind composition, using my uniquely designed simplified steps. We will focus on several unique cuts and I will provide you with tips and tricks that I use daily.”

The goal on Sunday is to have projects ready to be grouted by noon. Grout time is scheduled outside at 2 pm. We will need time for your projects to dry. If you are unable to complete the mosaic in time to grout we will send grouting instructions and a  grouting kit can be sent home.

Custom Order Stained Glass Mosaics by Kory Dollar of Marvelous Mosaic

Stained Glass Mosaic Fine Art can be commissioned to fit your style, design, and color choice. Marvelous Mosaic offers custom designs and creates one-of-a-kind stained glass mosaics. The possibilities are endless and if it can be imagined, Kory can create it. The mosaics are suitable for outdoor under covered areas, but can be created to withstand the direct sunlight and weather. Kory has spent decades using trial and error to find the highest quality products available. The process she uses is similar to laying tile. After she hand cuts all the stained glass, the glass is glued on the glass and then grouted like a shower. The adhesive is UV stable and will not break down, yellow, or crack over time. The grouting method developed provides the grout flexibility, durability, and longevity, making the mosaic something you can pass down from generation to generation.  When you commission a mosaic from Marvelous Mosaic you are buying a lifetime piece of fine art.

Ideas for commissions are endless, if it can be imagined, Kory can create it. Sun-catchers, privacy screens, murals, back-splashes, shower inserts, stairs, outdoor installations and more! Let Kory create your dream mosaic in stained glass and other recycled materials.

Kory offers many special additions to her mosaics, making them very unique and virtually impossible to recreate. She incorporates treasures, gems, jewels, precious stones, and other recycled items like jewelry, gears, beads, and  any unique treasure she can scavenge. Kory also adds family heirlooms to any commission. Think out of the box….Do you have a plate or a piece of jewelry special to you? Kory will personalize any mosaic.

Are you looking for a way to create a tribute for someone or a pet who has passed?Marvelous Mosaic offers special  and unique personalized Memorial Mosaic. You select a theme and color choice and I create the mosaic for you. Ashes are added to the grout to memorialize, your loved one. Contact Kory Dollar for more information on creating a custom mosaic.
