About the Book
This is the first photography book featuring our whimsical and colorful mosaic artwork. Included are images of wall art, boxes, coasters, spheres, lights, mirrors, mini art, wine bottle, flower pots, birdhouse, vase, wedding cake, wedding favors, candelabrum, letter openers, bottle stopper, belt buckle, necklaces. centerpieces, Easter eggs, luminary, and Christmas ornaments.
Each mosaic has been meticulously created by hand in our studio in Miami, FL, using our original designs. We use a wide-variety of materials including glass, ceramic, wire, wood, buttons, rhinestones, beads, shells, and mirror. This mix of materials adds another layer of visual and textural interest to each piece.
It was in 1998 that Julie Galvin Weilbacher discovered her true passion. She took her first mosaic class and realized she had found an art form she simply had to have in her life. At the time, she was working in magazine publishing which meant rushing home from long days in the office to delve into her latest project, or finish one from the night before. She was burning her candle at both ends, but her hard work reaped tremendous rewards. She quietly showed friends her creations -- which immediately led to sales, requests for classes, and thus her company, Mosaic Madness, was born. Julie Galvin Weilbacher's art has also been featured in The Knot Wedding Pages magazine and the Miami Herald.
