CHRISTY'S MOSAIC

Christy Spoto is a self-taught mosaic artist and currently resides in Sacramento.  She grew up in New Jersey and has been in California for 40 years.  She has degrees in Psychology and Sociology and together with her husband, Stuart own Spoto Family Wines,  a boutique winery specializing in Napa Valley Wines.  She has shown her work in juried art shows, galleries and specialty boutiques.  She works with glass and beads to create mosaics that are functional and beautiful.

In 2000 a friend asked me to help her mosaic an unsightly barbecue on her patio.  My feeling is that everything in life can be beautified with a “Splash” of color.  I like to think “ outside the box” in a funky way to create a piece of art…using tradition materials such as ceramic, stone, Italian vitreous glass, and tile can be fun but I wouldn’t think twice about using crystal wine closures, wine staves from our winery or foil circles from the tops of wine bottles for a more unique, quirky look.  The ultimate goal is to use ones imagination in mosaic and create art that is both functional and beautiful.
