My Current Project

Current Project

This is the piece I am currently working on, a present for my Mum who loves bees and gardening. I wanted to capture the delicate fragility of the bees legs and antenna, along with the strength but iridescent fragility of their beautiful wings. Such an important pollinating insect. The mosaic is created using traditional vitreous mosaic tiles for the body of the insect, glass black beads for the eyes and frosted glass for the wings, which are applied to a piece of off-cut kitchen tile I rescued, using PVA glue.
