Throwback Thursday - Crescent Moon and Sun Stained Glass Mosaic Plate



Made around 2016, created on an old glass dish, the vibe for this moon and sun is definitely hippie inspired. Bohemian styled and in honor of my teenage years, growing up in the 60's and 70's, as a flower child in spirit. This plate is extremely groovy.

Plate measures 10 inches and is a recycled dish given to me when I first moved to PA with my young children. It was used, loved and retired waiting for some mosaic magic.


One of my absolute favorites to create in mosaic form, moons and suns always make me happy. Fits in anywhere within the home or even a small apartment. Perfect for someone just starting out and/or ready to retire. Appeals to all ages, young and old.

We love this style; we love the energy that comes with this design. We love creating moons and suns in mosaics! It is the middle ground between the light of the sun and the darkness of night, and thus often represents the realm between the conscious and the unconscious. The circular shape alone is a symbol of the never ending circle of life. Placing a half moon and half sun inside the circle supplies even more meaning. The sun is often recognized as a symbol of rebirth, strength and power.

WIP Wednesday

I'm so happy to share a photo of the sun that is now in the "to be grouted" pile! Woohoo!

How it looks in artificial light.

How it looks in natural light.

Once grouted, it will be put in my Etsy shop for sale. This was a true labor of love (and patience for me, which is rare!) and I'm so pleased with the result.

Also, I only have a small section to finish on the larkspur before it will join the sun in the "to be grouted" pile.


I'm proud of this one. July's birth flower, Larkspur or Delphinium, is the first in a 12 part series. Now I only have 11 more to go! Yikes!! August will be done after I work on the crescent moon.

Tesserae Tuesday

I'm excited to share the sun I was working on recently and had to put aside. I had run out of the tiles I needed to finished it and therefore had to wait for the glass tiles to arrive. Now that I have them, I can finish!

See those blank spots? That's all that's left to complete. Really happy to have these tiles back in my rotation once more. I love iridescent stained glass!


That's all I have for this time. I really can't wait to get this pretty sun grouted and listed on Etsy!

Mosaic Monday - Lotus Flower Vase




Height: 8 Inches; Width: 3 Inches

Lotus Flower Mosaic Stained Glass Vase. Petals are in all different hues of blue in stained glass; all hand cut. The center is a piece of depression glass from a broken plate. Around the flower are green/blue and purple stained glass.


This is such a gorgeous mosaic vase. From top to bottom this mosaic is filled with small square and flower petal shaped hand cut pieces. I'm very proud of this vase and it's beauty. The mosaic muse really came through for us this time! Rich concentrated colors inhabit this beauty.


Use this vase with natural light when you meditate. It's a great mandala to study and creates a wonderful Zen feeling. Especially when a candle or lights are inside. Flowers look beautiful in this vase or it can sit on a shelf or windowsill and shine on it's own. Add some LED lights inside for a nice table setting or as added interest for a corner in any room. Pull this out for special occasions or use it every single day. We love useful and decorative art.


This vase is handmade with love and one of my favorite mosaic decor items to create and give.

DO NOT SUBMERGE IN WATER.

Measures 8 x 3 inches

Indoor use recommended. Can be used outdoors but do not leave in weather; rain or temperature changes. This is not weather-proof.

Throwback Thursday

Gotta love moon art! I call this one "Moon Glow". This piece is small but has a lot of interesting elements. A crescent moon inside a circle rainbow in stained glass and mirror.


I had some left over pieces of wood that my Dad gave me and that's where this started. I love the unusual shape at the top. If you held it any other way, you wouldn't see the design I imagined on it. As soon as I picked it up, I knew it had to be in this direction.


There are a lot of shiny hand cut pieces of glass and mirror in this small wall art. Colors include pink, blue, yellow, silver mirror, red, purple, all surrounded with stars and clouds in stained glass, some added to the mosaic once it was grouted. I made this cool piece in 2010.

Height: 4.5 Inches; Width: 6 Inches
