Harnessing the vibes of sailor tattoo art, this mosaic portrait of a woman is made from cut glass in the traditional colors of the original inspiration. The single tear on the portrait is a cut piece of blue mirror, leaving it up to the viewer to tell this woman’s story.

The artist calls this mosaic craft pursuit “illustrating with glass” because she allows the initial line drawing to dictate the shapes and cuts that eventually come together again with bold grout lines and reflective colors.

The creation process is slow, purposeful, and meticulous. Each piece of glass is cut with no limit to the challenging curved cuts, and as the pieces are brought together like a puzzle, tape holds them in place until the entire work is ready to be set on its base with grout.

- Measures 20” x 16” x 1.2”
- Stained glass mosaic on plywood

Artist Liz Martone founded EFM Studio in Brooklyn, New York before relocating in 2016 to a home base in Round Pond, Maine.

Unafraid to mix urban edge with rural sensibilities, Martone has a love for all things handmade. This explains her diverse exploration of mediums, which ranges from glass to wood to fiber. 

A BFA in Illustration formalized Liz's passion for the arts and continues to inform her work. She creates unique designs, focusing on lines and the spaces between. She translates her drawings to stained glass portraits and showcases a love for color and patterns in her mosaics and weavings.

Coastal Maine inspires the artistic core of Liz’s current work. From the endlessly fascinating shapes of forest mycelia to the shifting shades of the Muscongus bay, forms of nature are observed, honored, and reimagined in the diverse collection of art created at EFM Studio.

Liz’s work is exhibited in galleries in New York and Midcoast Maine, and much of her time is spent creating custom architectural installations for private and commercial clients.

From the artist: “I have always been drawn to the simplicity of lines and linear movement.  With a foundation in 2D mediums, I love taking the idea of a line and pushing what that concept is to the viewer in 3D works - to take a drawing and elevate it to a tactile level.
