About the Mosaics

All the pieces have been designed with a Biblical verse in mind, however, while reference has been made to the specific verse that inspired each piece, I felt that it was important to allow the observer to discover their own interpretation of each mosaic as they look at it, by allowing God to speak to them individually.


Technique

Each piece uses a mosaic technique called opus classicum, which is a combination of two mosaic styles: opus tessellatum and opus vermiculatum.  Opus tessellatum uses mosaic pieces in straight rows creating an effect like a brick wall while opus vermiculatum outlines a shape within a mosaic clearly, bringing a sense of movement and making it appear to stand out from the background.
