Byzantine Mosaic Art

Featured Artist -

Janet Farwell describes her mosaics as "Folk Art" Using a variety of materials to accomplish this. The main materials she is currently using are stained glass and vitreous glass. "I sometimes incorporate found objects in my work, which adds to the fun.

I never know what will inspire me-something someone says, the shape of a piece of furniture, or a picture on a card-so I try never to be without some paper and a pencil. The list of projects I want to do seems endless and the big cement retaining walls that can be found all over Jerome are just waiting for some color. One of these days. I remain fascinated with this medium and love every minute I spend in my studio, with a view of the Verde Valley in front of me."
