About Kasia and Kyle

The Kasia Mosaics Studio is located in Alamosa in the San Luis Valley in Southern Colorado

Kasia Polkowska is a stained glass mosaic artist and an entrepreneur.  Kyle Cunniff is her collaborative partner in art and in life.  He is an artist, a designer, an assistant instructor in the Kasia Mosaics Classes and a jack-of-all-creative-trades.  The duo met at and graduated from New York City’s Pratt Institute in 2006 where Kasia earned a BFA in Painting and Kyle earned a BDA in Industrial Design.  Since completing their studies, the couple has been traveling the country while pushing each other in various artistic endeavors.

Kasia Mosaics Online Flower Class Course Slide 6

At the beginning of 2014, Kasia and Kyle began teaching Kasia’s approach to the stained glass mosaic process.  Since then, they have taught over 300 students, having each of them complete their very own mosaic in the allotted class time.  Recently they added an online version of the popular Flower Mosaic Class which is now fully virtual and available world wide – something that Kyle and Kasia are very proud of and excited about.  In 2015, they took an 8 month road trip across the US, teaching pop-up mosaic classes in many places that they would otherwise never imagine being able to offer a class.  It was quiet a ride to say the least!

Kasia and Kyle have created this website together to share online courses, project kits and more! The page was designed to encourage people of all backgrounds and skill-levels to give stained glass mosaics a go!  New online courses and project kits will be added regularly.

Don't wait. Start something creative today.

I have a lot of students say to me when they do finally take a class “I don’t know why I waited so long to try this out!”

With my classes you get all the support you need to start your mosaic even for a complete beginner. Don’t wait. Try out something fun and creative today.

Practice

Any artform or creative endeavor takes practice. As the old saying goes if you don’t succeed the first time try, try again. What we learn from working with glass is that when we do it wrong, it breaks. When we do it right, it breaks right 🙂 Practice. Practice. Practice.

Patience

This is one medium you really can’t fast forward through. Its a meditation. Respect the glass and it will respect you. Try your best to relax and get into the rhythm of work. If its not working out today, take a breather, stretch, go for a walk and come back refreshed, works every time.

Persistence

Stick with it. You work hard and you get rewarded. Get excited about the next piece and the next. Working with stained glass mosaics is the constant reward and reminder that each new piece cut, trimmed and shaped makes you better at what you do and your work will show for it.
