COMMISSIONS PORTFOLIO

Our Mother of Perpetual Help, Thomas Aquinas College Northfield, MA Stained Glass, 2019

When the Thomas Aquinas College was opening their second campus in Northfield, MA in the summer of 2019 they wanted to install a mosaic onto the campus chapel. This installation was challenging and fun! My first religious themed mosaic. Read more about this installation in the Blog section.

Regatta Kitchen Installation, Brewster, MA, Stained Glass, 2018

This project was a lot of fun to work on. The clients were great to work with. They saw one of my small whales and when they purchased their second home on the Cape, they wanted their own whale above their stove! They then added the regatta theme across the kitchen and instead of doing regular subway tiles, they opted for hand-cut stained glass in the style of subway tiles. I am very happy with this installation. It looks great with their cabinet and counter selection. It is always fun to be part of a renovation process.

Chrysanthemum, 30"x30", Stained Glass, 2016

This commission is of a flower that the clients saw while at dinner. They wanted to commission a mosaic but they were undecided on what the subject should be. When they saw this flower, they decided that they wanted it turned into glass! Here is the original picture:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Barbara, 1957 (Sassy Barbara), 16"x24", Stained Glass, 2018

What a fun and challenging project! Below is the inspiration picture for the mosaic. It was a small black and white Polaroid that my client found of her mother. She later discovered that her mother is four months pregnant with her in this picture. My client commissioned this mosaic for her mother's 80th birthday. She wanted it to stay black and white but have a "modern pop" feel. We did this by having some of the objects (the bricks, her shirt, and her lips in color!). This project was my first attempt at recreating a black and white picture. Challenging but fun to create such a personal mosaic for my client. Happy Birthday Barbara!

Disco Balls, Mannequin, Mirror, 2017

I had been wanting to mosaic a mannequin for a few years so when my client mentioned the idea of a mannequin, I was so excited! This commission was fun but challenging. It was difficult to get the mirror to curve around the mannequin form while still showing the details and curves of the mannequin. In the end, it came out super funky!
