This is a life-size plaster human skull encrusted in glass mosaic tiles. It measures approximately 6" tall, 5" wide and 7" deep. Lot's of festive primary colors in this one. I utilized a mix of stained glass tiles some of which (the lime green tiles on the face) have been run through a rock tumbler for a few weeks to achieve a satin, non-reflective sea glass surface, and dichroic glass accents- dichroic glass is vacuum coated with a metallic surface that reflects different colors from different angles... very shiny! The teeth are copper acrylic paint.
I cut each tile myself, one at a time. This technique, though time consuming, allows me to control the size and quantity of my tiles, and allows me a broader range of colors and shapes than purchasing manufactured tile.
I hope you enjoy looking at my work as much as I enjoy creating it!
