dianne's ocean

Object: Dianne's Ocean           Commission

Materials: Vitreous Glass Tesserae with Pewter Grey Grout on Cement Board with a Travertine Frame

Dimensions: 46" x 18"

Method: Direct with mortar and glue

A commission from a friend to make an image to keep the sailor in her happy during the cold winters in her Rhode Island home.

Originally this was supposed to be an image in her backsplash above her sink ... a window to where she would rather be when doing the dishes. Due to the limited space and Dianne's wish to take her window with her whenever she moves, the idea had the freedom to expand and become a large decorative piece to be hung on the wall.

The sense of freedom and endless space the ocean gives was the inspiration. The movement of the water vs the serenety of the clear skies, the perfect combination for a day of sailing.
