Study in Blue- SOLD

2" by 2" on 5.5" metal sheet:  Smalti and mosaic gold 

These upcoming mosaics are a new sort of idea I've been working on.  These are much smaller than even my standard Mosaic a Day pieces, just 2" by 2".  It's a challenge to make something coherent and artful in such a small space, albeit an enjoyable one. The metal sheet comes from needing something to surround such a small artwork so that it takes up more visual space on the wall.  They are made for me by my friend Shawn Cunningham of Frontstep Forge. The surprising result of these metal backings is that these little pieces invite you to come closer to see their details.
