sandhill crane

Object: Sandhill Crane

Materials: Vitreous Glass Tesserae with Black Grout on Cement Board

Dimensions: 12 " x 24 "

Method: Direct with mortar

A play with pattern, size and color.
The red crown is very noticeable on these birds. The delicate pattern of the feathers is less obvious. Bringing these 2 characteristics together is what drove me to make this piece.

A small table tucked in the corner of at the Vatican Museum inspired me tremendously. The micro mosaic depiction of 2 ducks had the most stunning feather patterns, soft and lustrous.

Though this Sandhill Crane is not a micro mosaic by any means, that style of work influences the way I use varying size tiles and grout lines.
