Thomas Meyers (American, b. 1951) creates beautiful mirrors and glass wall pieces by combining three disciplines: collage, stained glass, and glass mosaic. This innovative and unique art form can be best describes as “laminated glass mosaic”. The glass panels are comprised of various iridescent, mirrored, dichroic, and textured sheet glasses, hand cut and set, sometimes in multiple layers onto a framed wood panel. The glass reacts to both natural and artificial light, creating a dynamic luminosity that reveales textures, depth and vibrant color. Each element must occupy its correct place for the beautiful end result. Read More
Thomas Meyers was born in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. in 1951. As a young man he was attracted to art glass, stained glass and architecture, and has been expressing himself artistically for as long as he can remember. Thomas now resides in Antrim, N.H. in a very interesting house described as an “earth sheltered” construction.
After working with the architect Donald Jasinski on several laminated and mosaic glass installations, he learned more about his innovative design of curvilinear earth sheltered buildings. Meyers called this design approach "Choreotectonics", derived from the Greek word “Choreo” meaning dance or dancing and “Tectonic” from the Greek for the art and science of building. He was inspired by Jasinski’s vision and asked him to design his art studio and family home. Each building took an entire year fro construction, but is now a magical space to live and work in.
His innate style of designing by collage, which he first used assembling works of paper, is the technique he finds most natural and spontaneous for glass and mixed media wall panels.
Specializing in Laminated Glass Mosaic Art, Thomas Meyers Studio designs innovative architectural glass art. A collaborative union with Conrad Szymkowicz Inc. Woodworker has expanded his capacity to include fine architectural wood components and furnishings.
