The 'Biggest' One
This is the biggest mirror I've made, to date. It was delivered to the client's house yesterday and installed today. The installation which can be stressful (lots of glass!) went very well. Everyone was happy, especially the client (yeah!). The design is from my Shag Series. This one being the loose shag in light grey. It measures 9'x5' and weighs about 120lbs (we think). Its big and definitely made a big statement in its new lovely bedroom.
There's only one way to do a mosaic and that's one piece (of whatever) at a time. There's no high tech machinery to speed up the process or little Disney mice running around cutting tiles in the wee hours of the night. The process is tedious, laborious and always seems endless...but in the end when everything is neatly in it's place all that is forgotten. And I start another one...
