Course intro and interview with Jennifer Kuhns and Tami Macala

Jennifer shares many tips and tricks on how to use pattern and flow in mosaic art

Are you someone sitting on a mountain..okay…maybe a small pile of rich colorful stained glass, and you want to learn how to use it to create beautiful mosaic art? Do you look at the work of other artists and wonder how they create beautiful lines of movement and flow in stained glass?

Well look no further, as we have invited Jennifer Kuhns to bring her talents and experience exclusively here to Mosaic Arts Online with her latest course, “Pattern and Flow in Stained Glass Mosaic.”

Stained glass mosaics have endless potential and can be manipulated in ways that other mosaic art materials cannot. Many traditional mosaic principles can influence the way stained glass pieces are used in creating mosaic art. Throughout this course Jennifer will point out how you can learn from the ancient mosaics while applying the methods in a contemporary way.

In this course you will learn:

  • Jennifer’s favorite tools for cutting stained glass
  • A basic lesson in cutting stained glass
  • Specific terminology used in mosaic art
  • How to cut stained glass to create curved lines
  • How to create directionality with specific cuts
  • How to create a randomized grid
  • How to create a radiating pattern
  • How to make glass pieces follow the contours of shapes within the composition
  • How to create a pattern and flow sample board for reference

Jennifer includes a variety of unconventional patterns for download in this course. These can be used to create stained glass mosaics for backgrounds, focal points, and any other place that is appropriate for your mosaic projects.

As you learn Jennifer’s techniques, you will be able to apply them with your own style as you express your creative voice.

There is a PDF for download of Jennifer’s favorite tools, materials, and five specific glass patterns to practice and learn on.
