Tanja Bell
Glass and Resin Artist
I'm an awarded mosaic artist that practices with all forms of hand cut glass from coloured, textured, iridescent, mirrored glass semi precious glass, Swarovski crystals and stones. Since 2005 I've been able to create beautiful pieces that have excellent light and reflective qualities relating mainly to the wonders of outer space and the extremes of natural earth. In 2008 I received the honour of doing a major piece with Bundoora Primary School which was sponsored by the Banyule Council. I enjoy the social aspects of teaching this craft. Recently I've been incorporating resin into the pieces with a beautiful organic and light transparency effect. All the photos here don’t do these pieces justice. Walking around them in real life demonstrate their real beauty.
