Sherri Sanchez says, “Making art is part of my spiritual practice. It calms and energizes. It feeds my soul and centers me. I have always loved glass and color. I love starting with a piece of vintage jewelry, an especially beautiful sheet of glass, or a handmade glass cabochon and watching as the pieces come together and take on life. Mosaic design allows for great freedom which is one reason I am in love.
