John Sollinger - Solly at Rogue Mosaics
Mosaic Instructor & Artist
I am a mosaic artist and educator, who is based in Ashland, Oregon, USA. I produce glass mosaic wall hangings that depict intimate botanical scenes or native landscapes and wildflowers of the western US, often with elements of fire or water and the absence of humans.
I have been awarded top accolades in international competitions in mosaics, glass, and all-media competitions. I have had the honor to exhibit and speak at mosaic conferences in Europe, Australia, and USA. My mosaics have been featured in popular press and coffee-table books, trade journals, art magazines and advertisements for art competitions and organizations.
I served as artist-in-residence at Crater Lake National Park, Uroboros Glass, and Olive Stack's Fine Art Gallery. I teach workshops on my unusual techniques, and in that space I reveal my double reverse method and approach to depicting realism through chaos.
