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