DORAN STUDIO: mosaic art & sculpture
Mosaic work is an art form that takes time. Each tessera is cut and placed by hand either directly or indirectly using techniques and tools that date back for over 2,000 years. Doran has studied worldwide with modern masters of this fine craft and combines a traditional knowledge and respect with her uncanny eye for detail and intuitive sense of design. Her interest, enthusiasm and passion for this art form is contagious. Doran creates custom designs for her clients needs, and teaches classes and workshops to those who are inspired to create their own piece of mosaic art.
With my own work, I am interested in creating curious objects that seem magical, that seem as if they are from another time and place, or might have been something you once dreamed. I gather many types of materials, from rusted metal bits to gold glass, and assemble them into something new and memorably beautiful. My passion for this art form leads me to teach classes and workshops. I love seeing what people discover and learn about themselves in the process of making a mosaic. ~ Katrina Doran
