Mosaic Commission – NCPTA – North Carolina Physical Therapy Association

I was thrilled to be commissioned to do a mosaic piece for the head office of the North Carolina Physical Therapy Association in Raleigh, NC.  The pieces were the letters “N, C, P, T, A.”  I carried a basic color theme throughout and included special, visually interesting pieces in each letter.  My goal was to be conservative – I’m known for being a bit whimsical – okay, VERY whimsical.  The project was a lot of fun and I was so honored to have been asked to make these letters.

Mosaic Letter “E”

One of my sisters-in-law asked me to make a New Orleans’ themed letter “E” for her boss.  He loves New Orleans, so I pulled together the brightest pieces I could find and went to work.  I made the leaves and crab from polymer clay.  I found the metal Mardi Gras mask at Goodwill and the jazz singer at a locat antique store.  

 

 

 

 

 

Penquin

My husband loves penquins so I made one.  I used black and white china, buttons, black beads and I made the bow from polymer clay.  After I paint the clay pieces, I put a coat of clear, finger nail polish on top to make it shine.  Then I spray the entire piece with clear gloss. 

Ta-Da – black and white penquin with shine.


Shiny red polymer clay bow…

Buttons and black beads.

My newest mosaic birdhouse!

The anticipation of spring inspired me to make this whimsical birdhouse!  I repainted the bird to match and filled the house with lots of pretty china, buttons, beads, polymer clay objects and rocks.  I love the mischievous smile on the bird’s face.  Cool
