"Stacked"


7" by 4" - Jasper, amazonite, mosaic gold, marble, eco smalti, copper

I'm not super crazy about this one.  For starters, I don't think there is enough tonal contrast for the mosaic to be truely effective.  In addition, I would cut the background pieces smaller if I could do it all over again.  However, I do like how I fixed the fact that this piece was a bit boring when I was finished--I glued small squares of reverse mosaic gold on top of other tesserae, which adds interesting depth when viewed in person.
