Mosaic Beach Studio
To Tanya MacFarlane, a pile of glass isn't a safety hazard—it's art. The owner of Mosaic Beach Studio keeps glass all over her studio in jars much as a baker keeps flour, sugar, and hoarded Lucky Charms marshmallows. She arranges these colourful pieces one by one until they form a glimmering scene, and perhaps even a mural for a local school or nonprofit.
Glass mosaics have been MacFarlane's full-time career since 2001. Beyond creating her own work, she also teaches ongoing studio classes, which meet five days a week and let students come in, design mosaics, and finish them at their own pace. More formal sessions—such as installation classes—focus on projects like bathroom murals or floor inserts. Mosaic Beach Studio sells all the glass and tools needed to create these projects and just about any other students can conceive.
