The first mosaic artist to be awarded a Rakow Commission, Gardner creates large-scale sculptures and installations with shimmering glass tiles that transform space. With their reduced forms and subtle decoration, Gardner describes her sculptures as quiet and simple. Most work in mosaic is architectural: mosaics are commonly applied to walls or they cover floors. Gardner is one of very few artists to create truly sculptural work with the technique. She does not just cover a shape with glass tiles, but uses light as an additional means to create volume
