Description

This gorgeous mosaic stained glass panel features pink bearded iris blossoms in various stages of bloom, along with daisy, marigold and forget-me-not flowers finished with a vibrant blue background. It has been created using hand cut stained glass adhered to a solid glass base. The mosaic is permanently mounted in a solid maple wood frame (14 5/8" x 18 3/4" - measured to outer edge of frame), and finished with a light coloured grout. The mosaic panel comes with a hanging kit.

Glass on glass (GOG) mosaics blend the transparency of modern stained glass with the intricacy of mosaics. The result is a detailed piece of artwork that "glows" when light is transmitted thru it. Mosaic has been photographed under various lighting conditions to show how light transmission effects look of artwork.

The glass artworks look beautiful when they are backlit by natural light. Alternatively, they can also be displayed with artificial back lighting.

**Intended for indoor display only**

FAQs

A mosaic is an artwork where pieces, tesserae, are assembled in a pattern to create an image. Tesserae can be many things including tile, stone, stained glass, or any number of found objects such as broken china or buttons. The craft of creating mosaics dates back to 3000 BC. Ancient mosaics were primarily crafted from stone or pebbles and decorated walls, floors and ceilings often depicting allegorical imagery.
Modern mosaics are incorporated commonly in architectural details, public art installations, and have gained popularity as an artform for all ages.
Glass mosaics often use the same colourful glass as leaded stained glass. When glass mosaics are created on another sheet of glass (glass-on-glass mosaics), they create a colourful effect reminiscent of leaded stained glass. However the detail, and freedom in image creation that can be achieved with a stained glass mosaic is much greater than in typical stained glass leaded works.
Leaded stained glass is created by using metals to connect pieces of glass together. There are two basic methods to creating stained glass: lead (or zinc) came method employs pliable metal with channels to hold a piece of glass. The metal is formed around the piece of glass and then touch soldered together to create an artwork. The detail achievable in came work is limited, so glass painting is often added to create detail in works. The popular copper foil method is a relatively recent development created by Louis Comfort Tiffany. In this method, an adhesive copper tape is applied to the edges of the glass pieces. Solder is then applied to the copper foil to adhere the pieces together.
*A mosaic can be made of any number of materials not just glass. The individual pieces of a mosaic are adhered to a base. In the case of glass mosaics the individual pieces of glass do not require metals to connect them together so no lead work or copper foil is required.

*Mosaics are generally more ornate and fluid than traditional leaded stained glass as the pieces can be cut in any size and orientation and the grout is of varying thickness becoming part of the image itself. Some glass mosaic artists do not use grout at all, leaving the gaps between the glass shards as an element of the artwork.
The frame of the mosaic is a permanent part of the artwork. When the glass mosaic is created, the first step in the process is adhering a solid sheet of clear glass to the frame being used. This creates the "canvas" for the artwork. Not only does this create an aesthetic clean edge for the artwork, it acts to stabilize the piece, create a dam for the grout, and provide an attachment point for hardware to hang the piece. I primarily use locally sourced repurposed wood frames and windows for most of the mosaics.
Outdoor display is not recommended for the stained glass mosaic artworks. The effects of wind, rain, and temperature variations can potentially deteriorate the artwork over time.
Stained glass mosaics are most beautiful when natural lighting backlights the artwork, making it "glow". The easiest display option is to hang the artwork in a window, or on the ledge of a window. All mosaic panels come with screw eye hardware for easy hanging. Lightweight chain is a great option for hanging and can be purchased and cut to desired length at a hardware store.
A sunny window is not a necessity to enjoy stained glass. In fact, stained glass looks very beautiful in a dark room with just a bit of light backlighting the piece, much the way stained glass windows glow in a dark cathedral.
The Etsy shop is my storefront and has all the currently available artworks listed.

I occasionally show my works at regional art shows as well as having several pieces for sale at Haldimand Artworks in Dunnville, Ontario.

Regional shows will be announced on the business Facebook page as well as on this site.

Local purchasers can save on shipping by picking up a piece in person from my home.
