recent custom work
Here's some pictures of my two most recent commissions.
I created the colonial tree piece for a back splash. It was installed over a cook top for a kitchen in Texas.
The mosaic mirror was a bit of a challenge as the theme is peacock feathers. Dyed blue agates, colbalt glass marbles and brass findings seem to fit the bill. Shell pieces create the ferns. I spent quite a bit of time on the back round. Happily I finished it by circling the feathers with halos of red and gold and a trail of green.
Red seems to be the color of choice for most of the custom work I've done. I really like it with the gold and green.
