"Reimagined Serving Tray" by Jennifer Hart. 12" x 20" mosaic made from glass serving tray, glass.
I found this beautiful glass serving tray with its deep-colored wood frame and ornate handles and right away I could see it repurposed as a piece of mosaic art. The lines of glass are straight and square in a harmonious palette of colors.
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.
