Description

A reminder to look for beauty in unexpected places.

Title: "Silent Beauty"

Last winter we visited the Manatee Viewing Center in Florida to see the manatees. Mission accomplished but I was also captivated by the silent beauty of the Mangrove Buckeye butterflies enjoying their nature garden.

So, using my own photo as reference, I recreated one of those butterfly in glass.

The butterfly is pieced from stained glass using a double indirect method. This gave the butterfly a smooth texture and beautiful calm presence in the mosaic. See an in-progress photo here: http://www.mosaicsmith.com/2013/01/new-mosaic-art-butterfly-wip.html

The background is pieced from Mexican smalti glass, chosen for the textural qualities of both the glass and the texture that happens when the pieces are glued in directly. Although smalti can be used ungrouted, I chose to grout the background in black to make this recede from the butterfly.

Measures 10 7/8" x 6 7/8" x 3/4" (27.5 x 17.5 x 1.8 cm). Outer edge is lined with black stained glass. Reverse is finished and ready for hanging with stainless steel picture wire. Substrate is concrete board. Suitable for an indoor location or very protected outside space..

Double boxed for shipping. Ships USPS parcel post or First Class Mail International.
