This is an abstract stained glass mosaic made using photographs I took of leaves throughout the fall season from my favorite tree in the apartment complex I once lived in. I taped them all together and placed it on the bottom of the plate and added stained glass colors representing the colors of the leaves; following the color scheme more than the actual shapes of leaves and trees.
No matter how you turn this piece of art, it completely changes perspective. Honestly, no matter how it's placed, it is quite beautiful. Stained glass colors used are all the colors you find in nature during the fall season. I hand cut every piece of glass in this mosaic.
The photos show the process of creating this mosaic using photos I had taken of my favorite tree's colorful leaves. You can see the work-in-progress before the mosaic was completely finished as well as the final results.
I love making mosaics on discarded items; transforming them into something beautiful and unusual. Such is the case for this mosaic. Very small hand cut pieces of stained glass were placed on a discarded 15 inch microwave plate and grouted, creating a work of art.
This plate is meant to be shown in sunlight. I have been known to call these plates suncatchers, but traditionally suncatchers are hung in the window. My plates are heavy and hanging is not recommended nor do I craft them for that purpose at the moment. They look fantastic sitting in the window in a display dish holder (not included).
Stay Peaceful and Let The Sun Shine In.
