Dr. Sheri Zoch is a scientist turned artist.  She owns and operates The Glass Menagerie in Llano, creating fused glass art.  At the age of 40, Sheri decided that there was more to life than science, so she took the class "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain", which blew her mind.  She started taking classes in all art media and finally settled on fused glass.  One of the projects during her first fused glass class was the construction of a mosaic of Marilyn Monroe.  During this project, students were given a white glass tile, black glass powder, and a picture.  The picture was a square from a cut-up larger picture of Marilyn.  Students moved the powder around on the tile using their fingers, combs, toothpicks and other tools to mimic the square that they were given.  The piece was fired in a kiln and assembled onto a backing to create the whole picture of Marilyn, which was revealed at the next class. Since then, Sheri has reproduced this technique at the Art Guild to create Marilyn, Captain Jack Sparrow and Willie Nelson and at Llano High School to create Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift.  The next demo at the Art Guild on Monday, March 4 at 10 AM will use the same technique to create a mystery celebrity!
