Mosaic is similar to life: a collection that comes together to make a whole. It embraces the simplicity, harmony and organic nature of a Zen Garden. It is a dance of order + chaos. I make + glaze all the tiles and the large feature pieces from high fire porcelain clay and my formula glazes. I collect rocks, river pebbles, slate, fossils, semi precious stones, stained glass and glass tiles.
The final mosaic images are a playful treasure of textures, colors + pattern. Some have a strong narrative quality and others are more abstract. And they all hold a sense of mystery and magic.
Pamela was attracted to Mosaic because the philosophy its creation does reflect life. The gathering, organizing and assemblage of materials, was a visual hook for her 2-dimensional design expertise. Pamela was not satisfied with broken dinner ware parts + filled rubble. To her, it had to embrace the simplicity, Harmony and Organic Nature of a Zen Garden. It is a dance of order + chaos. Pamela has worked with high fire porcelain clay + glaze for 40 years. She makes + glazes all the tiles and the large feature Rodger Mosaic pieces.
Rock, pebble, slate collecting comes naturally to Pamela. Her mother was an avid fossil hunter and soap stone carver.
The glass pieces are from all over the world and some from glass artisans.
In the Rodger Mosaic designs, the final mosaic images are a playful treasure of textures, colors + pattern. Some have a strong narrative quality and others are more abstract. And they all hold a sense of mystery and magic.
