Purple Haze

IMG_1921

22″  x  22″,  Purple Haze is a glass on glass mosaic, ready to hang in a window or on a wall. Featuring an antique Moroccan glass octagonal plate  and bits and pieces of purple shards, this piece is full of color and shape.

IMG_1914The window was found at a Habitat for Humanity salvage store. The back side still holds some paint but this weathered side excited me; I love worn wood. I searched for few weeks for the perfect centerpiece for the mosaic and found it rather easily at a local antique mall, just down the road from my house. It was in the second booth I visited and I’m quite sure I embarrassed my 17 year old son by shouting, “This is PERFECT!”. I get excited when parts of my art fall into place. What can be better than that?

IMG_1922The backside is really just as pretty as the front. If someone wanted to display it this side out, I could easily work on the paint job and move the hangars.

And for the inspiration of the title, here’s a link to that classic Hendrix.
