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.

Shattered Serenity

Shattered

13″  X  15″   Shattered is a glass on glass (on glass) mosaic in gun metal patina frame. This frame and glass was found at a salvage shop and is an RV window. The glass bits are broken recycled candle jar and the face is ceramic Buddha-like icon. The face is multi-leveled, both behind and in front of the glass window. In effect, the shattered face is coming through the window.

Plated Blush

IMG_1494

14″  X   40″   Plated Blush is mosaic of glass on glass. Using depression era pink glass plates and bits and pieces of the same and other pink glass, the piece was created on an antique window frame. Nearly bare wood, faded with age and weather, with remnants of white. I loved the detail of the wooden pegged corners and dovetailed frame.
