What is Glass Mosaic?
Glass Mosaic is a fun mixture of abstract painting and mosaic art. It is a one-of-a-kind artform practiced over the years by Chieko Shimizu.
The soft, dreamy colors bring out the sense of looking at the world through a filter of flowing water. Every time the light runs through the surface, the hidden layers of hues are appearing and disappearing, like a fleeting dream.
It is one of the most delicate, yet immense form of art that exists.
