Original and unique reversible layered glass mosaic of hibiscus flowers in two views. This mosaic continues my focus on layers. It is basically a three layer glass 'sandwich', with a single pane of clear glass as the 'filling', and a complete glass and grout mosaic on each side.

Title: Fire and Rain 9 7/8" x 14 3/8"

FIRE side of this mosaic window hanging features a highly textural focal hibiscus flower that is mosaiced in small fire colored bits of glass onto curved clear glass. The mosaiced flower petals were then attached to a center core of clear glass. Two additional flower buds are also featured on this side and both are 3D as well. The dimensional glass includes 'drips' and broken pieces from glass blowing studios.

The RAIN side of the mosaic features more muted coloring of a similar large flower and two flower buds. Here the buds are smaller though still in 3D. The large flower features a glass blowing drip as the stamen. Leaves are drooped as are the edges of a few flower petals (folded petals use textured glass).

Grout on this piece is customized to each area and took many days to complete. Several different greys were used in the sky areas, greens were used in the leaf and grass areas and red & wheat grout colors were used in the flower areas. Seven different grout colors in all. Grout has been sealed.

The look of this mosaic will change as the light on it changes and I tried to show that in the photos shown here. Photos #1, #4, #5 and the top portion of #3 show how it looks with sunlight streaming through it. Photo #2 and the bottom portion of #3 show how it looks on a white background.

This mosaic is ready for hanging in your interior window with two sturdy D rings attached to the upper edges of the solid wood frame. Rain side also features custom made, hammered and black patina'd, solid copper L brackets on the corners as well as engraved copper title and signature labels. (See photo #2)

**** PLEASE NOTE: Due to the 3D relief of this mosaic, this piece must be hung a minimum of one inch away from the glass surface of your window. A fixed, un-openable window would be an ideal location.**** Chain is not included.
