Perez Mott’s jewelry designs are created using semi-precious stones, pearls, bone, wood, metal and her favorite medium glass.
She uses a torch and kiln to create her lampwork glass beads, fuses plate and dichroic glass in her kiln and she creates her own sea glass for her jewelry.
Perez Mott says she knew she was an artist in the third grade. She was already creating and selling jewelry in high school and her first solo art show was at the age of 17.
Perez Mott has taken many classes and workshops but feels that she is basically self taught because she has discovered her present techniques through experimentation, trial and error.
She loves to talk about, teach and demonstrate her skills.
Besides being an active part of Art on the Divide Gallery, Perez Mott is a member of the Bead Society of Northern California, Sacramento Glass Guild, El Dorado Mineral and Gem Society, Placerville Artists Association and the El Dorado Arts Council.
The public is invited to a reception for the artist on Sunday, Feb. 10 from 2 to 5 p.m. Come meet Perez Mott, see her beautiful work and enjoy some refreshments. This will also be a perfect time to see the new work of the gallery’s other artists and perhaps find something special for Valentine’s Day.
The gallery is located in one of Georgetown’s historical buildings at 6295 Main St., halfway between the fire station and the American River Inn.
Winter hours are Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
