This is my favorite piece to date and the first time I ever incorporated beads and laid out a more intricate background. This piece includes mother or pearl, stained glass and assorted tessera.
I whipped this mosaic up for a girlfriends birthday. It was the first time I went from cement board to thin-set to mortar to frame – all in my own home! After I gave it to her, I was reminded that BC only had half a tail! That was a pretty important detail to forget!
I found this wooden house shaped board at an estate sale and this is what happened! Stained glass, beads, plates, millefiori, found object.
A little bit of everything, ungrouted, on cement board with thin set mortar. Inspired by the amazing and extraordinary work of Oxana Zaika.
