About the author

Carl and Sandra Bryant, a self-educated artist team, began glass mosaic work in 2001 after many years of oil painting and creating hand made tile. Mosaic art is like painting with glass, with beauty and permanence. Mosaics are graffiti resistant, versatile and can be applied to so many dimensions; indoor and outdoor murals, sculpture, fine art, wallpaper, backsplashes, fireplaces, mirrors, park benches and whatever else your imagination comes up with. The possibilities are endless.
