About Jill Gussow's Tile and Mosaic Work

Artist Jill Gussow creates engaging works of art, bringing a contemporary sensibility to the ancient craft of mosaics. She specializes in site-specific mosaic designs for commercial, residential, and institutional spaces.

I have been involved with public art for 26 years and have worked with mosaics for 16. It's a very old art form that is color fast, durable, easy to clean, and because of the intensive labor involved, prestigious. It is a natural way to incorporate art into architecture, particularly when considered early on in the design process.

I find that which is important to the client and create work both meaningful and relevant to the people and the space. I'm experienced working with architects and designers. I have a sensitivity to a client's ideas and aesthetics. I emphasize quality craftsmanship.

Mosaics may be created with hand cut ceramic and porcelain tessarae, glass, or stone. You can commission this rich and visually exciting artwork for your home or business. It can be abstract or figurative, complex or simple, and is permanent and low maintenance.
