Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

A piece of mosaic art is extremely time consuming and takes one to two months to make, depending on the size and intricacy of the work. A conversation starter, this piece of art is created around a mirror which is within a wooden framework and has mosaic art along one side.

A labour intensive process, mosaic art involves four basic steps.

  • Compose and design an outline.
  • Manually cut mosaic tiles and stained-glass pieces to the desired shape and size and paste them on the substrate.
  • Fill in the crevices in the piece – a process called grouting.
  • Polish the artwork to perfection before it can be showcased in homes or offices

Vandeepp Kalra

Vandeepp Kalra is a mosaic artist who plays with mosaic tiles and stained-glass pieces that she imports from Europe.

Her work, juxtaposing elements of texture, light and scale, articulates into stories filled with colour and mystery, thereby creating exquisite contemporary art.

Vandeepp’s dedication towards the art is witnessed in the minute detailing in her work. The painter in her keeps the movement and the fluidity of the subject alive, which is a challenge to achieve considering the static nature of the glass.

Vandeepp says, “What started off on a whim has grown to become an obsession of sorts. Like life, mosaic art is a journey of infinite possibilities. No matter how you plan or conceive the end piece to be, it will always have its own identity and character, full of surprises. And it’s this journey I find most gratifying.”
