Mosaic Arts Online is thrilled to present Jennifer Kuhns and her latest course, “Glass-on-Glass Mosaics.” In this course Jennifer shares her methods of combining the translucence of stained glass with a radiating mosaic design. The results are a versatile style of art that reflects light and color much like traditional stained glass art.

Glass-on-glass mosaics can be displayed in the same way as traditional stained glass. with frames, windows, doors, privacy screens, and sun catchers.

  • How to choose your frame and design
  • Jennifer’s favorite tools and adhesives
