Garden Tour: Door County Mosaic Art
Karin, the ultimate recycler, regularly combs flea markets and garage sales for materials to turn into art.
After decades as a self-taught stained-glass artist, she found herself with enough extra glass to start yet another art form. “I hate to throw anything away. I had so much leftover glass—that’s how the mosaics started.” She liked how the first pieces looked, and soon, the walls, rocks, stepping-stones and seemingly every other hard surface in her garden became a palette.
Here, colorful decorative mosaic panels cover Karin’s plain vinyl-sided garage, behind toad lilies (Tricyrtis hirta) and hydrangeas.
