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

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.
