Peg Black is a graduate of Baldwin-Wallace College with a degree in Music Education. Her work in glass mosaic involves individually making each piece to fit the pattern. The glass is not broken by hitting it with a hammer, but the pieces are created using special glass nippers. Her designs often include the use of flattened marbles as well as other glass shapes. Each piece includes a copper stand created by Gordon. Her work has expanded to included glass mosaic on wooden trays, gazing balls, trivets and other hangings. One of Peg's mosaic trays was purchased for display at Delphi Glass Studio in East Lansing MI. Peg is also an avid rubber stamper making greeting cards - often including water colors - as well as a decorative artist. She has won 'painting on glass' awards from the Hinckley Art Show and local fairs.
