The Exploration of Patterns and Colors in Glass by Kasia Polkowska.

Colorado based Artist, Kasia Polkowska’s stained glass mosaics are unified by a consistent exploration of patter and color.  Each mosaic is fully hand made as Kasia cuts and shapes each of the hundreds, often thousands of pieces of glass that make up each of her unique composition.

The vivid, colorful glass compositions reflect what the artist finds most beautiful.  Each new mosaic is an exploration of what she finds interesting at the moment.

‘Autumn Day’ a stained glass mosaic inspired by the Fall Foliage along the Appalachian Trail in Upstate New York.

Kasia draws much inspiration from the outdoors.  She travels and hikes the countryside, knowing she’ll stumble upon something new and wonderful that will eventually find its way into her work. Once back in the studio, she translates her photos and sketches into glass impressions, often paying tribute to some of the most beautiful and special places in the United States.

Sketching is an internal part of the process.  Each work is carefully planned as the artist works to create fun patterns and a balanced composition while putting together a pleasing color palette.

In addition to creating 2d as well as 3d mosaic works, Kasia shares her love of mosaic through teaching.  In 2015, she even traveled the US for 8 months, teaching mosaic workshops in a new state each week!  Today though she mostly focuses on her own artwork though still offers an online mosaic course for those interested in learning from her.
