Forest for the Trees – SOLD!

Forest for the Trees back side

21″  x  54″   Forest for the Trees is a glass mosaic. This first photo shows the back side, rough and sharp, but beautiful. The base is an antique window that I picked up at a salvage yard. The trees are antique glass plates and surrounding glass is from green glassware that I had. SMASH! The joy in creating a mosaic like this is in fitting the randomly shaped pieces together. And of course, the finished product. Can you see the forest for the trees?

Green pieces

Green pieces

SOLD!  28″ x 28″  Green pieces is a mosaic on glass. The old window came from a friend of mine who scavenged it. (love that!) The purple glass circles are old stage lighting gels, and the green ones are antique glass plates. The purple bits in the center are the remains of an ornate jar and the green pieces (there’s the title!) are bits of smashed green glass vases. The purple gels were the inspiration for the work, as they just made me so happy to gaze through in the sunlight. Together the piece gives a calming feeling, with some interesting contrast to keep the eye entertained.

Green pieces

My mosaics are not traditional as they have no grout surrounding the pieces of glass. I use a clear glue to adhere the bits. This creates more of a free form stained glass. Green pieces is ready to hang in a sunny spot.

Green pieces

Why call it Green pieces? Well for obvious reasons but also because I was listening to Greensleeves as I made it, and Green pieces sort of sounds like that. Such a heartbreaking song with such a lovely tune.
