Jane Glotzer


Plain Jane design...anything but plain.

Hundreds and hundreds of tiny pieces create a much bigger and much greater whole; hundreds and hundreds of tiny pieces unite the arbitrary and the varied, the airy bits of ephemera, the permanent chunks of stone and gem, the shiny slices of mirror and glass, the natural and the human-made; hundreds and hundreds of tiny pieces are joined together into a larger expression of texture, space, line, and color: hundreds and hundreds of tiny pieces eventually evolve into one integrated piece of Jane’s contemporary mosaic fine art.


For over twenty years, Jane’s primary focus has been a dedication to reducing waste and consumption by recovering, reclaiming, redesigning, repurposing and reusing the used, but not used up, with her contemporary approach to the ancient art of mosaics. Salvaging and working with castoffs and discards, Jane’s art is often whimsical in appearance, but always thoughtful in its environmental message. 


Jane says that at this point in her life, she is in her 6th or 7th incarnation, having been a 2nd grade teacher, a dancer, dance teacher and choreographer, a mother of two (now grown) sons, a preschool teacher, an interior designer, a children's theater teacher, a visual stylist and merchandiser, and finally, a full time working artist. Jane is originally from Brooklyn, New York and moved to Greeley, Colorado in the 70s for college. She then returned to NYC for a master’s degree in dance. Colorado called her back again in the 80s, and she currently lives in the foothills outside of Boulder with her husband and high school sweetheart, Steve. When not working on mosaics, Jane enjoys drawing and watercolors, hiking in my neighborhood, traveling in our beautiful state, practicing yoga, taking modern dance classes, attending live music and dance performances (pre-covid!), boogieing it up whenever possible and trying to live each and every day for the moment, with purpose and intention.
