Constructed of layered shards of tinted concrete and glass on fiberglass molds, Ann Gardner’s abstract forms challenge the notion of traditionally architectural mosaics. Working as a mosaic artist before she delved into blown glass works, Gardner experiments with ceramic glassblowing molds. She imprints the glass with the texture of clay and her fingertips and produces ceramic vessels encrusted with the patterned surfaces of kitchenware shards. These experiments led to her freestanding, wall-mounted, and hanging sculptures embedded with pieces of glass. Employing natural light and incorporating existing architectural structures, Gardner’s sculptural mosaics transform their surroundings and call attention to the passage of time by highlighting changing light conditions.
