Come and Be a Part of Our Mosaic Journey!

I am taking the rest of the year to travel the US and teach my Stained Glass Mosaic Flower and Owl Classes all through out the country!  This is a once in a life-time opportunity for anyone wanting to take my class locally as I tend to like hiding away in the mountains, being busy in my studio creating my own mosaics, tending to the garden and exploring the incredible nature and beauty of the United States =)

This Owl is a recent slight simplification/alteration of the the beloved "Professor Plum" seen below to the left.  I feel that the new version of the design will be more doable for the students in my 2 day 'Stained Glass Mosaic Owl Workshop' I will be teaching on my 2015 Kasia Mosaics US Tour. 
Check the dates and location on the classes on the tour.  Besides the Owl Class, I will also be teaching my popular 'Stained Glass Mosaic Flower Workshop'.  Here is the link to the schedule and sign ups: http://kasiamosaicsustour.blogspot.com/  Some of the locations for the Owl Class include: New Jersey, New York, Maine, Washington State, California and Indiana.  Email: kpolkowska@gmail.com with questions

Mosaic Moose for Kaylyn

Stained Glass Mosaic Moose for Kaylyn, 2014 by Kasia Polkowska

This was a really fun project for me.  I've  been wanting to work on an animal mosaic for a long time now but haven't had the time.  Creating this Moose as a Christmas gift for my niece was a great opportunity to finally make that happen.  This is the last mosaic that I completed in 2014.

Some of the reasons why the moose is the perfect animal to live in my baby niece's room are the wonderful spirit animal qualities that it posseses.  The moose as a spirit animal will let my niece of her importance here on earth, that she possesses special gifts unique only to her and that she is here for a reason. It will be there to remind her of her greatness and to let her know to take pride in her accomplishments in life. It will whisper to her to always find the joy in and of life.  Its wisdom will teach her when to be gentle and when to be strong, to always take action in a balanced way.  Those are just some of the reasons why this moose will be a good guardian to the little one.  On top of that, it is a majestic creature and every time I see it in nature, it feels like magic! It is very graceful and powerful yet goofy.  I think it will be a perfect roomate to the baby =)

Teton Sunrise

Teton Sunrise, stained glass mosaic, 14.5"x25" (16"x26.5"), 2014  available for sale

Photo by Kyle Cunniff on our trip to the Teton Mountains in the summer of 2013
A few process shots of "Teton Sunrise"

In 2013 my partner Kyle and I ventured on an epic trip to Wyoming.  For about 10 days we explored Yellowstone National Park as well as Teton National Park.  We only had 3 days in the Tetons but we made the most of it.  We backpacked Cascade/Paintbrush Canyons and did a few other day hikes as and shorter hikes which allowed us to experience the Tetons from all different directions and during different times of day.  Each view, each moment was unique and breathtaking as everything in this area seems to be.

On our last day, we woke up early to check out the sunrise over Jenny Lake.  It was spectacular as seen in Kyle's Photo.  I combined that memory of those sweet, sunrise colors with the view of the Tetons from Cascade Canyon where we camped with the
Youghiogheny head glass which I wanted to incorporate into a special project.  What I got is this landscape "Teton Sunrise".  It captures various experiences into one image.  So much is reborn into something new, something of my own.  Yet it is an homage to what so many can relate to, whether they have stood where I stood and looked at these very mountains or whether they simply dreamed it because it lived inside of them or because they needed this place to inspire them.  This landscape is real yet imaginary - you decide.
