Johannes Gutenberg, Mixed Media Decorative Icon

2009
Mixed Media
13" x 8" x 3"
This is an example of one of my smaller icons...however, it's still packed with visual excitement. It depicts Johannes Gutenberg, inventor of the printing press--an ode to my day job! For this one I've combined gilded pasta with watercolor-tinted pasta. Of course, everything is covered with acrylic varnish, so the colors won't run. It is made of various materials, including wood, glass beads, rhinestones, paper & pasta.
