Le 21 Avril 2014

I decided to concentrate on Mariam's Eyes only. I need to complete the laying of the tesserae as soon as possible to get her framed and take her to France in June !

Her twin sister will have to wait.

I completed last week the vertical part of the blue veil, and this morning I finished the bottom Red Veil.
We now have at least 20 different types of materials used on this piece ! Glasses, Mirrors, Stones...

To take these pictures, I sprayed the mosaic with water. Doing so better shows the colors of the finished piece. 

Tomorrow I will complete the irises of the eyes and get back to working on the top blue veil. 

I believe she will look gorgeous ! 

Mariam's Eyes mosaic is a commission to be delivered in June, but I am also working on her twin sister, which should be available in July 2014. 

If you are interested by this piece, or by a different mosaic, or simply would like to discuss mosaics, their techniques and history,  please contact me by phone at (334) 798 1639, or by email at

Mariam's Eyes Twin Mosaics

A short introductory Video of Mariam's Eyes twin Mosaics.

Mariam's Eyes are made after one previous work of mine : Green Eyes, who flew to Dubai last winter.

Green eyes was the first one of my Mosaic Eyes portraits.  2 years later Mariam's Eyes are bigger, and differently centered. I am also using different materials. 

I am actually making 2 mosaics on the same design. One is the mirror image of the other. Twin sisters ! 

One of these mosaics is a commission for a dear French friend of mine.

Mariam's Eyes will be flying to France in June, and her sister will be available for purchase in July 2014. 

If you think you might be interested, please contact me by phone at (334) 798 1639, or by email at

I will be posting more pictures of Mariam's Eyes on my Mosaicblues Facebook page, this blog and my regular mosaicblues blog.
