About Vickie

In the last eight years I have been working in ceramics and mosaics.  Early planned, scaled, glazes tested and precise projects have evolved to richly colored and textured tiles and wonderful abstract mosaic assemblages. Making the tile for my mosaics gives me one more opportunity to immerse myself in the joy of the process.  More recently (now five years ago), I added the found objects element to my mosaics.  Sometimes they are added to the ceramic mosaic and other art pieces are of the found objects only.  As I continue to work and experiment with found objects, clays and glazes and experience their wonderful surprises the more organic my mosaics become.

Lately I have been gravitating to more and more found objects. There is something about the history and patinas of things that I want them in my art work. Rusted zig zags, nails and handmade heart tiles are showing up to create a whole new “Salsa” series of work. It must be a creative departure from the detailed kitchen backsplashes and larger commissions I spend so much time on. I love it all!

Mosaic Commissions

I have been so fortunate to have been commissioned for several mosaic projects in the past months

The Phoenix Children’s Hospital mosaic commission is titled “Coming Together”.  It is in commemoration of all the employees coming together as one family from Phoenix Children’s, St. Joseph’s Pediatrics and Good Samaritan.  I included several significant “found objects”.  The end of the stethescope of the PCH chief of staff, commemorative coins from Phoenix Children’s Hospital and St. Joseph’s Hospital as well as employee recognition pins from each hospital and a stone with “HOPE” engraved was included for patients who are well now.  My favorite objects are the  many “Beads of Courage” that are strategically placed within the mosaic composition representing the children who are the patients at the hospital.
