In Focus: Artist Thomas Meyers

Mirror and Glass Arist, Thomas Meyers

New Hampshire-based artist, Thomas Meyers makes beautiful artwork out of glass and mirror. While he works in several different types of media, including bamboo, paper and wood; we find his stained glass pieces are the closest to our heart. He has exhibited in some of the largest craft shows in the world, and is showcased in galleries all over the US, including a few in North Carolina.

To make his mirror pieces, Meyers uses various iridescent, painted and textured sheet glass, hand cut and precisely set onto a framed wood panel. Many of his pieces are available for sale on the Artful Home website. Some of the glass pieces he uses are hand-painted; some are iridescent or dichroic glass. Many pieces have a textural quality, and his mosaic process allows the dimension of the glass to add interest to the mirror border, almost like a glass quilt.

According to his website, Meyers compares his process to, “transforming a pile of stones into a beautiful stone wall. Each element must occupy its correct place for the beautiful end result.” We couldn’t agree more. When his piece is complete, it is like each bit of glass was meant for that exact spot. Beautiful.
