Happy Holidays & New Year Wishes!!

Posted: December 23, 2016 in Uncategorized

option-2-964x1024It’s good for my holiday spirit each year to take a moment and work on something a bit fun and holiday themed.  2016’s holiday mosaic is a little star ornament of blue mirror with some black line accents.  Our household moose sculpture (a must for all Canadians!) helped hold it for a picture. 😀

It’s been quiet on the blog while I’ve been working out the kinks for some new projects.  Hopefully that quiet will change as 2017 looks promising for new work to share with you soon.

Wishing you all the happiest of holidays (for whichever one you celebrate) and may you have an amazingly wonderful New Year!!

Have to share this amazing work – as a mosaic person I love the ones that are mosaics made with unconventional mosaic materials and as an artist am in awe of the talent and vision with these materials! plus, they are a whole lot of fun to look at… 🙂

You know that old saying ” a cobbler’s children have no shoes “, well my poor husband had no mosaic.  He’d requested one specifically a year and half ago.  But his project kept getting pushed to the side.  Finally it was his turn.  He had to wait so long…I really hoped it would be worth it.

Thankfully it was worth it and he was thrilled.  He had requested a giant version of the Shimmery Squares that I’d done at Orsoni – that were based on a project I’d seen there.  But I didn’t want to copy the same thing.  I presented him with several alternate ideas, some with a tiny bit of raised area to give a little 3-D effect, he picked one idea he liked and we went with it.

The end result is 3 squares, a little off-set, with the smallest square being slightly raised from the other two.  It is made from blue and green gold smalti and is so shimmery and neat when the sun hits it!  The pieces are laid with the outside square horizontal, mid square vertical and inner square horizontal – it is really hard to get a good pic of this – but here’s a few shots below.

We’re going to go radio-silent for the next month or so.  Heading south to take a class that hopefully will give me skills to add a new dimension to the mosaics then getting in a little R&R after that with the husband.  Check back with us in May and hopefully I’ll have some fun bits to share with you!
