Stephanie Tempest

Stephanie Tempest has been creating mosaics for the past three years and started Tempest Mosaic Studios in early 2014. Her artistic process begins with a sketch or colored drawing of the envisioned mosaic, and she strives to incorporate different & various materials in each finished piece including shells, stones, wood, and fired clay whenever possible.

“I love tiles. My eyes popped out of my head when I saw all those jars full of colored porcelain and sparkling vitreous tile the first time I took a mosaic class. Call me crazy, but they looked like candy and I just wanted to eat them up! Questions of ‘what to mosaic on’ slowly led to ‘what the heck CAN’T you mosaic on?’ and the real answer is that your imagination is your only limit.”
