We have the fantastic pleasure of saying goodbye to the year with an incredible artist. Working under the moniker of Plain Jane Design, Boulder-based Jane Glotzer is taking mosaic mastery to another level.
It’s not your standard floor, path, or plant pot getting the mosaic treatment, instead it’s a whole host of unsual, unloved items from rusty shovels to fiddles. Using wasted materials to both cover and be covered, Glotzer produces incredible things of beauty that benefit the world, not only because of their looks, but because of their recycled nature.
The one-of-a-kind pieces are simply magical, looking as though they have been discovered from a long-lost civilisation, or otherworldy culture. After being a teacher for many years, and a creator for much longer, Glotzer found a new calling, a mission “to come up with something to do with the tons of perfectly good materials, like ceramic and glass tile and beautiful expensive fabric samples that were simply being thrown in the trash.”
For those in Boulder, Glotzer’s work is being featured at Pearl Street’s R Gallery, 2027 Broadway, up until December 13th.
