Statement

After spending many years experimenting with different artistic mediums, Rachel van der pol has developed her own unique style of mosaic art.  Using shards of vibrant stained glass and other found objects, she intricately and patiently pieces together her creations.  Mosaic work is an ancient craft that is fabulous due to its durability and versatility.  Rachel hopes bring a fresh appreciation to this art form by updating the look of the medium.
