Modern Alchemy in Art

Tanya Charlesworth Garvis works with extremes. In a centuries-old process known as vitreous enameling, she mixes copper and tiny granules of glass to create modern compositions of light, color and texture. Arranged and framed in tiles, her mosaics represent an ordered, organic nature of clouds captured in water or fire absorbed into rock.

“Tanya’s work is totally unique and the craftsmanship is astonishing,” says Alan Nugent, interior designer and co-owner of the Abode Stockholm Gallery in Stockholm, Wis. where her work is being shown this October.  “Her work is totally inspiring—I could create entire themes to complement one of her pieces. The colors and texture are like jewelry for a room.”

Charlesworth Garvis’ work is currently being featured in Vail and Telluride, Colorado galleries and will be featured in the Bachman’s Floral, Home and Garden Store in Minneapolis in November.
