Join Kelley Knickerbocker for a Mosaic Arts Online exclusive course. This step-by-step introduction to her “Radical Dimension”variations of glass-on-glass mosaic called “flat stacking.”In flat stacking, different opacities of stained glass are adhered in stair-stepped layers to a mirror substrate. Students will explore the use of luminous light diffusion, color blending, and unique 3-D background/foreground effects. Through the use of edge stacking, stained glass strips of diverse heights/lengths are stacked on edge to showcase the light-handling properties of the riven edge. Students will learn how to: choose an effective glass palette for this technique, design a stacked glass project, work cleanly, introduce other materials to augment and enhance the glass elements, and learn how to properly mount and frame the final product. Included in this online course is a downloadable PDF with a full resource list of all the tools and materials necessary to complete this project.

Visual artist Kelley Knickerbocker left a 22-yr administrative career at the University of Washington in 2006 to found a mosaic studio (Rivenworks Mosaics, Seattle) and direct her accumulated skills in project management and planning toward designing/fabricating/installing mosaic artwork for public, commercial, residential and gallery environments.

Kelley’s ruggedly dimensional mosaics, in a broad range of materials, are a textural distillation of her fascination with contrast, material properties and the technical challenges of mosaic construction. Sharing that fascination and learning from other art makers are keys to the freshness of Kelley’s mosaic practice, and she travels extensively throughout North America speaking, collaborating and teaching in-depth workshops on mosaic style and technique.

Kelley’s fine art mosaic panels have been accepted to numerous national and international juried exhibitions, and many reside in private collections. She is an active member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists.
