One last note from Sherri
“One thing I’m sure I missed was mentioning my long time studio assistants. I’m able to work with people that understand how my work requirements expand and contract according to the work in-house. Conversely, I’m flexible with their time restraint, depending what is going on in their lives. Because of this, Tiffany and Janet have each worked for me for over 25 years. I’m also fortunate enough to have other talented people and occasional apprentices when the production requirements expand. I’ve been presenting the fact that the studio has over 75 years of combined mosaic experience but with this California project and the assistance I was lucky enough to engage, that number was significantly higher.”
About the Behind the Mosaic Podcast Series
The Society of American Mosaic Artists is a nonprofit that is dedicated to educating, inspiring, and promoting excellence in mosaic arts. We have produced publications, exhibitions, and conferences which include educational experiences and public service projects for over 17 years.
In that time, we have seen incredible growth in the awareness of mosaic as an art medium and even more so, an evolution of the medium itself in the hands of North American artists. Our newest program offering is a Podcast available to the public to further SAMA’s mission through discussion of sustainable mosaic technique, the creative process, and the diverse applications of the medium. A resource intended for artists, mosaicists, collectors, and enthusiasts of all kinds. Behind the Mosaic is a series of audio studio visits with the most inspirational people in the mosaic art community, hosted by SAMA Executive Director, Dawnmarie Zimmerman.
