Debra Bard Javerbaum’s metal mosaics are inspired by a gorgeous piece of metalwork that her in-laws, Tema and Ken, bought overseas. Deb found herself so enamored with it, studying it and marveling at it during each visit to their home, that she dedicated a full year to figuring out how to create her own. Countless trips to hardware store later, she now paints, enamels, and distresses copper and steel squares, arranges them into eye-catching arrays of kaleidoscopic color, pattern, texture and shine, and shows her one-of-a-kind metal mosaics at a lovely cooperative art gallery in Southern California.
Commissions are welcome. Deb collaborates with collectors, interior decorators and set designers to create custom mosaics. One of her large custom mosaics was featured on the set of the Netflix series, “Disjointed,” starring Kathy Bates, and smaller mosaics on other TV series. Contact Deb to arrange a studio visit or gallery visit and collaborate on a custom piece that perfectly complements your space. With so many potential variations for each tile, and so many ways to arrange them, the possibilities are endless.
