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 firstname.lastname@example.org
