Promo Blast!

If you follow this blog, you've seen the work-in-progress of this mosaic I'm sharing today for the Promo Blast! post. I had some fun creating a video the other day and am going to share it here. Learning how to use this new website I found it occurred to me I can do a series of "start to finish" kinds of videos, especially client-specific ones, so look for those in the future.

It's far from professional but here's the first attempt, less than a minute to view, using this weeks promo as an example. Click on the link below to watch it and enjoy.

Kizoa slideshow: A New Horizon - Stained Glass Mosaic - Slideshow

Stained Glass Mosaic, Mixed Media Art, Abstract, 12 Inches

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 are placed on a discarded 12 inch microwave plate and grouted. The title of this is "A New Horizon". I imagine standing towards the edge of a cliff where I see grass, hills, water, sand and rocks. It's a new beginning, a fresh start and an inspiration in one 12 inch mosaic stained glass plate.

When this is turned it completely changes perspective but no matter how it's placed, it is quite beautiful. Stained glass colors used are green/yellow, amber, white/light blue and aquamarine.

This plate is meant to be shown in sunlight. I used to call these plates suncatchers, but traditionally suncatchers are hung in the window to grab the light. My plates are heavy and hanging is not recommended nor do I craft them for that purpose. They look fantastic sitting in the window in a display dish holder (not included).
