Mosaic Florals are made from a combination of glass mosaic backdrops and vases with found objects that substitute for flowers.
In this class, Debra will share her knowledge of adhesives and specialized tools to help you learn how to prepare and assemble your treasures for mounting and how to work in a ready made frame.
Since the arrangement won’t be grouted, you can use materials of all kinds including metal, shells, pearls, fabric, you name it! Debra has incorporated buttons, knobs, shower rings, even coasters!
By the time you finish this class, you will create a magnificent mosaic bouquet completely unique to you.
After a successful career as a corporate marketing executive, and a lifetime of collecting art, Debra tried her hand at mosaics. As the demand for her work started to grow from just family friends to commissions from fans across the country, Debra soon realized she had found her second calling.
Eight years later, Debra Mager is now an established and highly regarded self-taught mosaic artist traveling around the country to teach mosaic workshops and to participate in art festivals.
She has a penchant for creating dimensional, whimsical and rather unconventional mosaic works, which include her unique mosaic floral arrangements, birds and other creatures, as well as her jeweled mirrors and mosaic shoes.
Cinderella Mosaics became her company name because Debra considers the discovery of her dormant artistic talent an unexpected blessing, or “a true Cinderella story.”
“Making mosaic art affords us the chance to reassemble broken parts and pieces into works of beauty. What could be more healing and rewarding than that?” – Debra Mager
