13" x 13" The mosaic was created from a ceramic pitcher I I purchased in Spain and is a beautiful example of the picassiette technique. This technique involves using broken pieces of ceramics, such as plates, dishes, and tiles, to create a new work of art. It's fascinating to think that the ceramic pitcher was once a functional object, but now it has been turned into a work of art, a testament to the beauty that can be created from unexpected materials. I used gold painted coral and colored mirror to create movement and reflection. The coral adds texture and color that compliments the design on the pitcher. The colored mirror creates an exciting and dynamic effect that enhances the movement in the piece. The way the light reflects off the colored mirror creates a sense of movement, almost like the artwork is alive and moving. The flow of this piece reminds me of a Japanese dragon in flight.
Coral: coral is often associated with the energy of the sea, which is considered to be a powerful force of nature. It is believed to have a calming effect on the emotions, and to help promote feelings of peace and tranquility.
Copper: One of my favorite metals to use and a conduit for happy energy. Copper is believed to be a tool for balancing the chakras and its energy is said to flow freely through the body, helping to remove blockages and promote healing on all levels.
