What do you like best about being a mosaic artist?
Mosaic art is a beautiful art form, provoking emotions, inspiration, contemplation, and more. It is a forgiving art form. The technique allows design and color changes to be made before the finished piece without sacrificing materials, or having to start over.
Particularly exciting is seeing your finished art. The addition of grouting, cleaning, and polishing combines to enhance the design and compliment the piece.
Challenging…For me, it is how I will work with the ‘flow’ of the design, how I will cut each piece of glass, and placement so that the art has movement.
What was the best advice given to you as an artist?
That I could always do better.
Are there any artists that particularly inspire you?
Some of my favorite artists include Landseer, Henri Rousseau, Sandro Botticelli, etc.
Can you walk us through your process?
Once I have an idea, I do lots and lots of research in books, and on the computer, to see how I might approach the design. Sometimes I begin with a sketch and I will create a composite. When size is determined, I can begin setting up my workspace and cutting, placing the pieces of glass.
( . Copyright © Pamela Mauseth) Fox Pounce How much time I spend on one piece of art is determined by its size and when the client requests the piece. I have spent nearly a year on some pieces and 2-3 weeks on others. Which of your works are you particularly proud of or have a special connection to?
I am particularly proud of my first mosaic, St. Francis and the Wolf of Gubbio. Also my Madonna & Child, which is in Archbishop Murphy’s St. Thomas Chapel, Everett, WA.

Creating a large mosaic mural, series of mosaics, etc., for Public Art.
What recommendation would you give someone interested in purchasing a mosaic?
Each piece of art has a unique feel to it. It is one-of-a-kind. Art brings warmth, humanity, character, and inspiration into spaces, whether it be your home, office, or commercial entity. Purchasing beautiful things enhances the atmosphere in all living spaces.
The beauty of Pamela’s art doesn’t reside in the fact that she tries to evoke a particular emotion, but rather in the way she lets us connect with each piece on a personal level. You can view some of her inspiring work
