My daughter LOVES New Orleans, so I thought I would make her a special mosaic to represent her love for this city. Many of the items used are from shops around Savannah, Tybee Island and Charleston. See below pictures of this fun and quirky piece…
I’ve been busy making quite a few mosaic letters and below is a collection of some of them….
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.
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.
I started this piece with a simple tin birdhouse. I attached the china with thinset, then grouted and sealed with a clear coat sealer. I attached 4 wooden blocks on the bottom so it sits nicely on a table. Very whimsical and colorful.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because the decorations are so whimsical and fun. I recently made this mosaic skull.
Check out the fish I put on the chin.
