Create a breathtaking glass-on-glass mosaic masterpiece! No experience required! Everything will be provided for you. This is a 2.5 day workshop, with  Kory Dollar of Marvelous Mosaic Fine Art, where you will start with custom framed window, approx 15″ x 15″ that will be transformed into a gorgeous work of art.

Students will learn her Three Step Fabrication Method®  to simplify the steps in creating a  Freestyle Mosaic Wave®. We will discuss a unique strip cutting approach to break down the glass and maximize your waste. This is a wonderful opportunity to understand how to organize your mosaic from start to finish, breaking down each section into a layer of elements. Specific topics will include color theory and her NEWLY developed opacity rules. Kory will demonstrate several cutting techniques, including her signature one-cut-sliver cut and a glass shaving cutting style.

Local artist, Kory Dollar, is coming to Melt specifically to teach this class. She is known across the US for her outstanding creations in glass. I encourage you to visit her Facebook page, Marvelous Mosaic Fine Art  and her website, http://www.marvelousmosaic.wordpress.com to see examples of her amazing artwork. She is really fun to work with and will bring a lot of energy to this class!

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. Email, Text, or Call dollarkory@gmail.com or 360-719-9298.
