"Mosaic Heart in Brown and Green" by Jennifer Hart. 14" x 16 Mosaic made from glass, glass tiles, two retro jewelry pieces.
This heart is a mix of greens in shades probably not commonly used together - Kelly green, lime green, and mint green. The two retro lime and brown pieces of jewelry at the end of the large green glass on the right were my inspiration for this design, so browns and greens it had to be. The shape of the heart, cut from plywood, is free hand and not meant to be a perfectly symmetrical shape.
I embrace reduce/reuse/recycle/repurpose in my personal life and my artwork. I want to see and use things in a new way. Scrap wood with its knots, nail holes, bark, old paint marks, and myriad of other imperfections is a true treasure not to be tossed aside. Cabinet doors, old cutting boards, old windows, and wooden ceiling fan blades are all perfect palettes.
I love the hunt and scraping the bottom of the bin or bucket for that interesting piece of metal of which I have no idea its original purpose, but I see shape, texture, color, and possibility. Miscellaneous metal, rusty old hardware, nuts, bolts, chains, wire, hinges, deadbolts, screws, nails, and washers, Oh my! And then there is stained glass, pottery, tile, China, beads, bobbles, and old jewelry. The possibilities are endless and every piece is unique.
