Grace Blowers


PV-Grace-Blowers“I feel compelled to create. To not bring a vision to fruition is as foreign to me as the notion of a lioness not protecting her cub. Creating has never felt like a choice for me, but a way of life. I am a mosaic artist. Though I have tried others, no medium has captured me like tesserae.

In my work I use ceramic, porcelain and glass tile, tempered and stained glass, marble, smalti, and assorted other “finds”. It is unusual for me to create a piece by sketching it all out, or having a firm plan. Rather, I let the work take me where it will, at times with a vague idea of my goal for a piece, at times with none. My art is my life, for it encompasses family, friends, and God.

My creativity is a part of me, and is not something I put on the shelf at the end of the work day. I learn and I grow as a person from every piece of art that I create. To have such a gift is no small thing. I am the luckiest woman in the world. This violin was created out of my love for flowers in nature. The piece is mosaiced with glass, tile, and other finds.”
