STUDIO FRESCA: some old stuff...fresh new ARTitude
SCHOOL DAZE
2010
Glass on Glass Mosaic
~ 18" diameter
This piece was created in response to an artist's directive stipulating the composition contain repetitive shapes, patterns and/or tesselations. My goal with this was to create a piece using slightly irregular repetitive shapes (circles, ellipses and triangles) and loose, uneven tesselations in a casual manner to create a pattern motif with a touch of fun and whimsy. I also wanted to use the simple composition as a background with which to play in a more intricate way with the subtleties of light reflection and refraction in an effort to create texture, depth, movement and interest with changing light effects on a somewhat static composition.

MATERIALS: stained glass; tempered glass salvaged from auto wrecking yard; glass gems; iridescent vitreous glass; millefiore; glass beads; on recycled pyrex microwave turntable; with sanded grout.

PLEASE NOTE: This item was carefully and thoughtfully created from recycled, reclaimed and salvaged materials which may contain "imperfections" such as small chips, cracks, crazing, scratches, etc. As with all one-of-a-kind, handmade items, these "imperfections" are considered enhancements to the piece and do not detract from it's value. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns.
