Gertrud Müller, mosaic artist
I am a full time artist and mosaic is my medium. In addition to the classical mosaic techniques and conservation skills I initially mastered, I experiment with modern techniques, materials, and methods of producing the designs for my mosaic projects. I have also created designs and coordinated collaborative mosaic projects for corporate clients in Turkey, Brazil and China.
The ritual act of re-connecting broken material to create a new image, in the form of a unique mosaic, echos my personal aspiration to connect people through the act of collaboration.
I host workshops of multiple kinds, including individual studio sessions, group workshops, team building workshops in organizations, and community based projects.
