WIP, working on echinacia flowers today. These aren't glued yet. I will break them up into smaller pieces first. Lots of #pinkglass! I think for now the effect is painterly. In this type of work I am going in-between realistic look and a decorative representation of flowers. Enjoy!
🌼🌼🌼 I do have mosaic courses where I teach how to make flowers! LINK IN BIO for www.LearnFineArts.com

Day 2, I have transferred the designs using a carbon paper. I am now outlining them, so I can see my design better. Next step- choosing glass.

Starting a new layout for a local client. This is an outdoor piece and it required days and days of prep work to make the frames and substrates weatherproof. Now I can finally start my favorite part in mosaic making - a layout.

Dear fans, join me on Instagram at yuliahanansen I post there more regularly and also answer questions and communicate right away. I have to put my FB fan page on a back burner due to Face Book's inability to show my posts to my fans (maybe 5% of you get to see them). So I am moving all the action to Instagram. I am still going to visit this page from time to time, but if you want to message me, the best way to do so is via Instagram or my website www.mosaicsphere.com

Spiral beauty. In my view of seeing the world, everything is either spiraling in or out. Our whole Universe might have spiralled out into existence from an infinitely small point.
Sold this one last year from Andamento Gallery.

I think I might have figured out the geometry of waves propagating from a sphere. In my sketch they are drawn in a "sketchy", quick way, but for the mosaic I need a more defined, exact lines.
As you can see, even abstract art requires some background planning, especially when done in mosaic. The elements of abstract art, such as Point, Line, Shape, Form, Color, and Composition all come into play. I love working in abstract art and teaching it to others!

Finished and ready for it's journey to a new location.
This was not an easy project because I had to use hard to shape porcelain tiles. But I am happy with the way this logo sign turned out.
I chose an almond colored grout that supports both, lights and darks in this mosaic.

"Yin & Yang: Matter & Antimatter" mosaic that I am having on display at my studio. Many different materials went into making of this piece: smalti, glass, stone, qtips, millefiori. The effect is a continuous interplay between the two forces, each trying to cancel each other out, and yet, if that happens, unable to exist.

03/05/2021

Can you ID these tiles? I got them at SAMA a few years ago, but don't remember which vendor. It's smalti, a little thinner than Italian and thicker than Perdomo one. I love the way it cuts!

Finished the layout for this sign! This is one of the most difficult pieces I have ever done because the porcelain tiles are very hard to cut. Although I did use some Cinca tiles, most of them are Wilkenmans . Winkelmans have changed the back side of their tiles and now they are stronger, but also quite impossible to break with precision. You can now also use one side of a tile. Each piece that you see here was hand shaped, every single one, and most pieces required 1 full tile.
I love the way this turned out. Gluing and grouting is next.

Can't wait to start traveling again! I made this landscape from a reference photo that I took on our trip to Utah. The water in the canyons was so scarce that the ranger told us to filter only what we need and leave some for the wildlife. I titled this mosaic "Water!"
I do teach Landscape Mosaics both online and in person. For the online course see Learn Fine Arts link in bio.

Work in progress. Very difficult piece to work on, especially the small lettering where I am trying to preserve the soft typeface and yet work with hard to cut porcelain. I am using Starrett nippers for most of cutting with occasional wheel cutter snap.

I have a ton of glass (literally!), but I keep my most used pieces on this shelf. The shelf is the oldest and the most precious piece of furniture in my studio - we hand built it 20 years ago when I started my mosaic business. It held 7 pieces of stained glass that I bought for my first significant project and it has never been empty ever since.

Modifying lettering for use in mosaic. Rounded edges in mosaics are hard to do and in most cases, when the round off is very tight or small, are impractical. In this case I am modifying the letters a little bit to fit the mosaic medium. When looked from a distance, the letter type will look very close to the printed version at the same time maintaining a look and feel if a mosaic.

"Venus” 18”x18”, stone, smalti, gold.
The idea for the project originated from my drawing that I did for an Inktober ink drawing challenge. The prompt was "Treasure". What can be more precious than a figure of Venus of Willendorf floating in the vastness of space?! She was even given a space helmet!

While we are iced up in Maryland this mosaic flower is enjoying a much warmer weather south in Florida. I finished this piece late last spring and after framing it, that took several weeks of waiting due to the pandemic, I shipped this piece out in the summer.
This was the largest individual peony I have done for a site specific space in my client's private residence. Enjoy!

About Mosaic Sphere Studio, LLC

Yulia Hanansen is a second-generation artist. Having mastered many techniques including mosaics, printmaking, drawing, painting, textiles, and more, Yulia has been professionally involved in mosaic making since 2001. Her Mosaic Sphere Studio, LLC was the first mosaic studio/gallery in the state of Michigan to show and represent mosaic artwork. Studio is currently located in a charming city of Baltimore, Maryland, USA where Yulia works and lives. Mosaics are made for commission, or they can be purchased from a thematically extensive collection of ready-made artworks. Pieces include architectural installations, back-splashes, wall art, public and community projects.

Yulia's latest works represent her fascination with themes of nature, climate change, cosmos, and a connection of human beings to it. She is interested in depicting places and natural phenomena that are only noticeable with the help of technology. Her personal and experimental artwork uses layered glass mosaic technique, where tiles are glued on top of each other. This technique is about the infinity. Like in a brush-stroke painting, there is no end to a number of the brush-strokes that can be applied to the work surface. "Water", "Fire" and "Starscapes" series have been created in this technique. Yulia also has a passion for more earthly subjects such as flowers, landscapes, and close-ups of nature.

Yulia teaches mosaic art at the mosaic schools and art establishments throughout the US. In addition to mosaic-making Yulia is an adjunct printmaking professor at Towson University, Towson, MD.

Hi Yulia I really admire your work and would love to take classes with you. Are you planning to come to Miami any time soon? We don't have mosaic classes around here and it would be great to have someone like you even if it was only for a weekend. Looking forward to hearing from you Thanks Nora
I took the liberty to use one of your wonderful artistic work on my page as an illustration for Venus. I hope that you did not mind. I put your link there to, of course. I hope that you get a lot of views, because your work deserves it. Thank you.
I just read about you in the book Breakout by Brit Hammer-Dijcks. I'm very inspired by your story and I am a beginner mosaic artist. I need to know about artists such as yourself to help me keep my vision alive and growing. Thank you for being you!
