Ron Candelaria

Ron fell in love with Mosaic Art during a stint at an army base during training.  

 

"I could not get over the immense feeling of the beauty of mosaics in the classic style and how it affected me when I first laid eyes on drawings and photos", says Ron.  

 

He promised himself someday to give that a try, and then, more than half century later, he leapt into the pit of glass, ceramic and porcelain shards and gave it a shot.  

 

With the help of the entire group of mosaic artists at CMA Ron found the help and the teaching he needed to succeed in getting mosaics built.  

 

Included here are some of the artist's first and latest attempts at the art that he has built over the last nine years.
