mad for mosaic art

March 15, 2012

Georgia artist Paul Pearman is well-known for his hand-crafted belt buckles, worn by rock and country music stars.

In his intricately hand-forged, his-and-her buckles (shown below), Pearman uses fine gemstones, mosaic glass and precious artifacts. No two are alike.

But recently the Augusta artist was recognized for another project.

Pearman received a top award from the Society of American Mosaic Artists for his architectural chandelier sculpture in the lobby of the School of Dentistry at the Georgia Health Sciences University in Augusta.

“The Four Stages of Higher Learning,” as the 28-foot mosaic chandelier is called, fills the building’s atrium. It features a stainless steel skeleton, sculpted form and various textures of mosaic glass. (Photo by Sally Kolar).
