At Jabezz Arts studio we are
passionate about Mosaics. Each of our mosaic artworks is unique and it
is our sincere wish that you get as much pleasure and joy from these
pieces as we experienced in making them.
As an art form, mosaic is diverse, robust and functional, permitting the
use of a wide range of relatively simple materials and techniques to
create lasting and useful works of art.
Mosaic is also very addictive, primarily because it successfully marries
creativity with a relaxing and therapeutic activity. Daily stresses and
routines are quickly forgotten once you become focused on creating your
artwork. The hours seem to fly by and, before you realize it, the class
is finished, you are relaxed and you have created a unique piece of art.
Perhaps the greatest satisfaction I get from doing Mosaic and
transferring skills to others is the amazing creative variety, which
inevitably results when people sit around a table and start creating
their Mosaic artwork. Each artwork is just so different from the next.
I’m a firm believer in the philosophy of expressing individuality when
it comes to art creation and the materials and techniques you adopt.
Just about any medium/material can be incorporated in the making of
Mosaics. If you’d like to combine glass and porcelain tiles then so be
it. There are a few basic “rules” when it comes to the use of colour,
but when creating artwork, the artist should have complete artistic
freedom to express themselves as they see fit.
The greatest attraction of Mosaic however is that any person can do it –
even if you think of yourself of someone who possesses no artistic
skills. Children as young as five can readily create their own
“masterpieces” with only a little instruction and patience. Try a Mosaic
class and you will be pleasantly surprised by your latent talent.
The name Jabezz was adopted from the ‘Jabez Prayer’ in the Bible and
it’s my firm belief that when you have faith and believe in
possibilities, God will make them happen.
Believe in yourself. Be creative. It’s easy!
