ALL A-GOG — AN INTRODUCTION TO GLASS ON GLASS MOSAICS (direct method)
Glass-on-glass (or "GOG") mosaics are those where the substrate is glass — usually transparent or semi-transparent — and the mosaic tesserae used in the design are also glass — again, usually transparent or semi-transparent. While much of the GOG work commonly seen combines the beauty of stained glass with the intricacies of mosaic methodology and generally employs grout, rather than came channel to pull the work together, there are also some very unique GOG pieces being produced with a variety of glass work methods (such as fusing, slumping, etc,) that are then combined with mosaic techniques. Pieces can be 2D, as in a window hanging or 3D as in a vase.
