Screen Jewel

  Framing Options  

Object: Screen Jewel           Sold

Materials: Marble and Gold Smalti on Cement Board

Dimensions: 10.5 " x 6.5"

Method: Direct with mortar

This is my latest in the series of small, portable and affordable vignettes. Be sure to take a peek at some of the framing options a professional frame shop can offer to set off the texture and color of a mosaic.

Dozens of beautiful lizards, including Florida's green anoles, hang on the window screens of our house. This gives interesting underbelly views and many continuously renewing acrobatic poses.

In addition to the 3 yellow-tan marbles, the background contains a sprinkle of gold leaf smalti tiles that sparkle as the sun does while it shines through the windows and warm these wonderful little creatures.
