I am a firm believer in too much decoration. Pottery Barn has wayyyyy too many shades of white. I love mosaics and the way they let me express all the shades and textures and patterns we have in our lives and in our imaginations. I also love the way mosaics utilize the old, the broken, and the discarded to create something entirely new, and usually much improved. I find inexpressible happiness in seeing sunlight sparkle on a mirrored garden stone, or helping glass, and pearls, and grandma's dishes give an iridescent new identity to an old guitar.
It is simply about joy.
