Issue 5 (website): Mar 2023

Welcome to Issue 5 of Mosaic & Glass. A big thank you to all the contributors involved in putting it together for you to enjoy. We’re now creating a magazine primarily focused on mosaic art and its artists, and we’ll include one long read (and sometimes a short read too) on glass art in each issue so that you can continue to get inspired by that art form too. We’ll also have longer, in-depth features on mosaic art with more writing by artists. By mosaic art, we mean mosaic in its traditional forms, along with mosaics created with glass as well as mixed media mosaics that incorporate glass elements. We also cover stories about artists working in what might be considered assemblage or collage. Plus you’ll notice lots more technical tips from the artists.

Matt Hanson finds that the art of mosaics has lived at least two lives at the heart of the nation’s proud, resilient identity. And Joanna Kessel interviews Andrea Spencer about her path and glasswork. And much more…

Issue 3 (website): Aug-Oct 2022
