I love glass, any kind of glass. I love colour, light, light shining on and through glass.
Cherie loves the way the light is reflected through the various textures, constantly changing depending on the time of day, the season, the weather.
For Cherie, the mosaic process is one of meditative catharsis, from the initial concept of the piece – often influenced by nature – to the process of choosing from the rich colours and textures of the glass. The deliberate shaping and setting of each mosaic piece, then grouting to bring it all together for the final reveal.
Stained glass, glass on edge, stacked glass, beads, glass chips, sea glass, tempered glass, mirror and anything else that catches the light, are all things that Cherie transforms into exquisite pieces of visual pleasure.
Recently Cherie has added polymer clay to some of her work. A new dimension is born!
Most of all I like to have fun with the creative process allowing the materials to lead in the creation of a piece.
