Mosaics in Glass

by Abby

Abby Machamer
About the Artist

After living in New Hampshire for 35 years, Abby and her husband, John, have returned to their roots in the Susquehanna Valley of Pennsylvania.  Abby has worked with traditional methods of stained glass, using copper foil and lead, however calls glass-on-glass mosaic artistry her artistic home.  She feels that this method, which incorporates a variety of stained glass, recycled glass, and other materials, allows a more flexible platform in this contemporary style of painting.  Vintage wooden window sashes, often with bubbled glass, provide the backdrop for the repurposed themes. Texture, tone, and color are incorporated into each piece.  In her words; “I work on a white surface which helps me to see the colors as I build a landscape, flower garden, or geometric.  Yet, there remains an element of surprise when I lift a completed work to the white light of nature and truly see the creation for the first time”!
