Seahorse

Seahorse

Most of my mosaic work is the result of a customers request,
The Seahorse was a grand challenge for me.

My customer wanted a micro mosaic, 3D, abalone Seahorse with an art deco slant!. Gee whiz, how do I accomplish that? Being a self taught artist I readily accepted the challenge!

7 1/2” hand cut abalone micro mosaic seahorse. oceanside glass tiles with mother of pearl pebble surround. I also utilized the new Bostick urethane grout with the Seahorse! In bright light it shimmers and has a glow that no other grout embodies. Also, this state of the art grout will NEVER stain! Total size 9” x 13”

As you can readily see the cut and fitted pieces are quite small.

There was a difference in the thicknesses of the materials, adding to the complexity! Being self taught is a slow process, ah but the Joy of success gives great sense of accomplishment!
