Birch Forest is a rich blend of colors and textures that reflect the natural sunshine of daylight or glow by lamp at night. Made of thousands of hand-cut pieces of stained glass and mounted in 3D with curving trunks and arching branches. Grout is used as both mosaic medium and a negative space texture that adds to the sensation of depth in this piece.
My contemporary glass mosaics are made for wall hanging or installations. Edges are trimmed with glass tile but may be framed.
Each piece is crafted on a dense foam core and fiberglass base making it surprisingly lightweight.
Dimensions: 32" X 62" X 4"
