Mosaics, by Request - Wordless Wednesday (Vol. 6)

About a week ago, I had a request from a fellow blogger to share some of the mosaics I've made.  (Ahem!  E Man, this is for you!)



Linking up with Wordless Wednesday

As always, thanks for stopping by!



West Virginia, my beloved home state, was hit by devastating floods last week. Many homes, businesses, schools, and churches were completely inundated with rapidly rising water. Many of homes were completely washed away by flash floods. West Virginians are strong, resilient people who rise up in the face of adversity. But, even the strongest folks could use some prayers from time to time. I ask that you remember the flood victims who have lost their homes, their livelihoods, their belongings, and especially those who have lost loved ones. Thank you.

  2. I love your work.

    My friend (a nurse) left for WV today to volunteer with the Red Cross. Many good thoughts to all those affected.

  3. Cool mosaics. Do you buy the odd-shaped pieces already odd-shaped or do you break normal-shaped ones?

    I thought of you when I heard about the flooding, but since you didn't mention it (except a casual reference to rain), I figured your people weren't involved.

    1. Thank you. Some of the odd shaped pieces got that way after ceremoniously breaking a larger piece of stained glass (think put glass in bag and drop bag on floor). Many of them were cut into odd shapes by me with cutters in order to make them work in the piece. Any pieces that are fairly square, were cut before I got them. All of the black tiles in the sunset mosaic were square originally (made in molds) and then cut by me.

      Yes, I was in WV during the flooding but the county where I'm from and where my family resides was not affected. The hardest hit counties were around the Charleston area and to the east (Nicholas, Fayette, Summers, and Greenbrier counties). My home county definitely dodged a bullet. Had the flooding hit my hometown, I think it's easy to say that my grandparents and my aunt and uncle more than likely would have lost their homes. And, given the amount of rainfall that fell in such a short amount of time, the road to my parents' house, which is on top of a mountain, might have very well washed out. Pictures I have seen on Facebook of the affected communities are beyond words.

    1. Thank you. It is a very peaceful art. I've often likened it to meditation.
