Jenny Presents: Mirrored Window for Mosaic Month!
It’s Mosaic Month here at PBAF!
Jenny Shain presents “Window Watching”
The Creative Process:
This is a large window that I mosaic-ed with 200 pieces of mirror that I cut. Breaking mirror is much more tedious than it appears. You cannot simply break it & set it in place. MOST pieces break with cracks & splits… not good enough for me. Also, each piece must be inspected to see if the mirrored backing has come off, those pieces have black marks on them under the glass. Next comes setting each piece like a giant puzzle with no box lid to cheat from! In all of my mosaics, I’ve made every piece fit tightly & perfectly. That means, it may appear random, but no part of my art is ever random, it’s designed. Each piece is hand selected for that particular area.
