Each Glass Mosaic Sculpture is uniquely sculpted using a reductive technique. A light foam base is carved into flowing contours, and is then coated to create an exoskeleton. Each sculpture is encrusted in rhythmic patterns of hand-cut colored glass, mirror or gems that are selected to emphasize the character and form of the underlying structure. The tiles are smoothed and arranged into flowing lines adding vibrancy and intensity to the twists and curves. Collectively they entice the eye as the light shimmers and dances across the multi-faceted surfaces, generating a sense of energy and movement. Suzanne draws her inspiration from the gracious elegance and simplicity of natures’ design, the foaming swirling action of water, the majestic unfurling fern frond, and the upward reaching spirals suggestive of a twisting wooden spire. Some pieces explore symbols such as the infinity sign, where the form is stretched and manipulated to take on many personas.
