Chieko Shimizu Fujioka is a glass mosaic artist living in Santa Clara, California. Layers of colors on the panel represent the fundamental essence of nature's beauty I've experienced all around the world. In order to interpret those fragile memories, crushed glass is added to create reflections of lights along with grout to run as a bloodstream of my artwork. This art form of "Glass Mosaic" has taught me to treasure the small miracles in nature that we might overlook easily by getting caught up in daily lives. Every precious encounter with nature is preserved under glass forever for me and you to step back and remember to be thankful.
