Inspired by the principals of fractal geometry and Mandelbrot’s concept of self similarity, this collection is created by cutting mirrored tesserae into smaller and smaller pieces and stacking them, thereby exposing the edge of the glass. Typically in mosaic work, these edges are hidden by the grouting process. By exposing and emphasizing these edges, they interact with light, create depth and shadow and much like fractals, a multitude of irregular shapes emerge.
