This mosaic is a bit of a departure for me since pink is usually NOT on my favorites list. Not that I hate it or anything but if you check my other work you see that I have a strong affinity for orange. So, because I know orange is a color that people have strong feelings about, I pulled out some other colors to play with. This came together from an inspiring magazine photo of a Dahlia, a clock works I had with great scroll hands and nice deep brown pieces I had left from another project. I just started playing. The color pieces are stained glass. The substrate is a 12" x 12" piece of concrete board attached with brass screws to a solid pine support frame.
The rest of the design evolved to solve the problem of how to indicate time- this is a clock after all. I hate clocks that make you guess too much. I always indicate at least where the hour numbers are in a creative way. My quilting background is showing here- I used a 12 point star of my own design and cut out little graph paper patterns. A sharpie is essential for marking glass- quilting rulers are fantastic with glass too.
The clock hands are just laying on top to approximate the finished look. I'll grout this in white most likely. But first I need to add glass to the edges. I also need to paint the back of the mosaic to seal it and add the clock works and hanging wire. After it is grouted, I'll seal the grout as well. Then look for it for sale on etsy.
