Carol Krentzman creates artwork in her home studio and on location for installations. Since 2000 her focus has been on creating public art by making stained glass and indoor and outdoor mosaics. Carol’s mosaics are fabricated with a variety of broken tiles and individually made fused glass and clay elements.
Carol and Amy Steinmetz's large 12' x 54" public art mosaic, "Smiling Faces" was installed May 2019 in Natick Center on the side of the Fair & Yeager Insurance building. In April 2019, Carol completed a 4' round "Peace Dove" mosaic, with help from some of the congregants and other volunteers, for the sanctuary of the First Congregational Church of Natick. For the Edward M Kennedy Institute exhibit, called "A Seat at the Table" honoring Shirley Chisholm, Carol and her fellow artists are honoring the trailblazer Mary McLeod Bethune. Carol made a mosaic timeline to go in the seat of the wooden chair created by Jeff Olsen, with paintings on the front and back of the seat back of the chair by Jason Cheeseman-Meyer. The chair, along with 19 others honoring other notable persons, will be on display at EMKI from June 2019-March 2020.
