There will be a reception on June 18th, from 5pm-7pm, where you can enjoy some refreshments and meet Dee Dee.  Dee explains how she got started creating stained glass mosaics, “After taking a traditional stained glass class, I had a large amount of left over small bits and pieces of glass and someone suggested mosaics.

I love working in anything that is “bits and pieces”, that is why stained glass mosaics is a favorite medium. I love the stained glass look with the flexibility of mosaics. I’m able to repurpose old windows, frames and doors to use as a base.

I’ve been working in mosaics for over a decade and I never get tired of the new ideas I can find.

My bits and pieces love also extends to quilting which I see as a very similar style in a different medium.”
