"let's talk about mosaics as art. Why are mosaics considered strictly 'decorative' arts? BECAUSE JUST LIKE POTTERY AND BASKET-MAKING, THESE MORE FUNCTIONAL AND RESOURCEFUL ART FORMS WERE TRADITIONALLY PRACTICED BY WOMEN. wHEREAS 'FINE' ART PRACTICES SUCH AS PAINTING AND SCULPTING WERE USUALLY PRACTICED BY MEN. What I do is art, and I am working towards removing the lesser-value placed on the decorative arts and the art of women in our contemporary times. "
