A Little Cream With Your Coffee

 

A Little Cream With Your Coffee? I

12” x 12”

This is the first mosaic I ever made incorporating three dimensional elements. The cup and creamer are from the set of dishes we received for our wedding. When it was time to replace them, I couldn’t quite let go, so I decided to use them in a piece of art.

I’ve always had this piece marked as a ‘sample’ but I’m finally ready to sell it.

The edges of the piece were finished with clay colored grout, which was then distressed.

A Little Cream With Your Coffee? II

12” x 12”

I love to incorporate not only the feeling of depth but the feeling of motion in my mosaics.  If you look inside the creamer you’ll find ‘cream’ while the coffee cup has ‘coffee’ inside.

The border is made with black stained glass.  The background is red stained glass.  The china has a navy blue border with a gold pattern.  I used navy blue grout to finish the piece.

Aaah, Beer

 16” x 16”

There’s nothing like a good Wisconsin beer on a hot day.  Or a cold day.  Or a Spring day.  Or a rainy day.  Or an Autumn day.  Or an …

Alice’s Tea Party

 16” x 19”

I found the Alice in Wonderland tea pot at St. Vincent de Paul.  It shouted out to be used in one of my 3D mosaics.  The tea cups and saucers also came from trips to St. Vinny’s.  In my imagination, the tea party always took place with a mismatched tea set.

The top to the tea pot comes off and if you peek inside, you’ll find it is full of tea, as are the tea cups.  Time is a very important issue in this story and is represented by the four pocket watches in the corners.  Of course, we couldn’t leave out the Queen of Hearts.

Apple

10 1/2″ x 11 1/14″

This apple could represent a lot of different things.  An apple for the teacher? An apple a day keeps the doctor away?  Maybe it’s the apple that got Eve into so much trouble?  Or, perhaps it is the poison apple the evil witch gave to Snow White.

Boggled By Coffee

12 3/8” x 12 3/8”

Boggle cubes frame this mosaic.  If you look closely, you’ll see they spell out coffee related words.

Do you feel a bit boggled before you’ve had your first coffee of the day?

Cheesehead Wine

 16” x 16”

I found this bottle of Cheesehead Wine on display at our local liquor store one day.  There it sat on the counter, proudly wearing its cheesehead hat.  I didn’t even care what the wine tasted like, I knew I had to make a mosaic out of it.

The Green Bay Packer glasses are vintage from the early 70’s.  Our local gas station gave one out with every fill up.  We had the whole set, both sizes and used them regularly at dinner time.

Coffee in Black and White I

 12” x 14”

The bold, black and white linear design of the coffee mugs inspired this mosaic.  The geometrics are continued on the ‘tablecloth’ and ‘walls.’  If you peek inside the cups, you’ll see they have coffee inside.  You can almost smell the aroma of the coffee wafting upwards with the steam.

I used black, pot white opal and for the steam, silver Van Gogh glass.  Black grout was used to finish the piece, including the edges.

There is something special about dragonflies which seems to appeal to everyone.  These three dragonflies are enjoying a summer day.

For the Fin of It

12 ¼” x 19 ¾”

As a scuba diver, there’s nothing I like better than enjoying the sea life on a reef.  I’ve never seen killer whales on a dive but I’ve shared the experience with all the rest of the critters in this piece.

The glass used for the ocean had a subtle wave like pattern which you can see if you look closely.  I also arranged the glass to mimic the feel of ocean currents.

Who hasn’t dreamed of being a castaway on a Caribbean Island and enjoying scenes like this every day?

Leaf Me Some Wine

Approx. 16 1/4” x 16 1/4”

The beautiful blue of the bottle in this mosaic is complemented by the blue stems of the wineglasses.

Moonshine

 16” x 16”

The inspiration for this piece came to me while having an MRI for my shoulder I injured while creating my mosaics.  We had recently gone to a tasting at the Minhas Distillery in Monroe.  (Love those Groupon coupons).  I had my first taste of moonshine there and loved their Apple Pie flavor.   Thinking about the moonshine, I knew I had to make a still.  As soon as I was out of the MRI, I asked for paper and a pen so I could sketch the design.

The still uses copper tubing with the ‘moonshine’ dripping into the traditional mason jar.  The letters spell alternate words for moonshine and are from a Scrabble Anagram game.

My Best Friends Are Books

16″ x 16″

I love to read and it has always been one of my favorite ways to spend time, although these days working with glass competes with my reading time.  The inspiration for this piece came to me while I was having an MRI on my shoulder, which I injured in pursuit of my art.  I searched for a long time to find just the right ‘book’ to be used as the centerpiece.

No Wine Before Its Time I

16″ x 16″

This was the first piece I ever made incorporating a wine glass and wine bottle.  One of my cats had knocked one of my favorite wine glasses off the counter, on to the floor.  Since the cat wasn’t allowed on the counters in the first place, I wasn’t happy.  The bowl of the glass was intact but the stem had broken off just above the base.  I decided I had nothing to lose by trying to cut it in half lengthwise.  It worked out perfectly, as you can see.  I framed it using wine corks.

No Wine Before its Time IV

 16 ¼” x 16 5/16”

Who doesn’t enjoy a relaxing glass of wine with a little fruit?

The gold mirror glass used in this piece evokes a beautiful white wine. The surface of the glass is slightly rippled, so it picks up and reflects light from many angles.  Even the ‘wine’ in the wine bottle has a beautiful shimmer that shows through.

Painting for Dummies

In this mosaic, an artist’s mannequin has become the artist.  He has his paint brush and palette in hand as he creates beautiful paintings.  The painting the mannequin is working on is not attached to the easel and can be replaced.

Do you enjoy going to painting parties?  Bring a tiny canvas with you to your next party and make a miniature painting.  You can then display your masterpiece on the easel in the mosaic.

Soup du Jour

 12” x 14”

This mosaic was inspired by the Campbell’s soup bowls/mugs, which I found at St. Vincent de Paul.  We all grew up eating Campbell’s soup; it’s a comfort food.

If you look inside the soup bowls, you’ll see they’re filled with ‘tomato soup’, just ready to eat.  The Scrabble tiles framing the piece are some favorite soups.

Sundaes With Toppings

 12” x 14”

There’s nothing better than an ice cream sundae with all the toppings.  These sundaes feature ‘strawberry’, ‘chocolate’ and ‘vanilla’ ice creams.  You can see the ‘chocolate syrup’ oozing down inside the glasses.  Of course, they’re topped off with a cherry.  Choose your toppings from the ones made up of the Scrabble tiles framing the piece.  The table cloth and background were designed to be reminiscent of Wilson’s Ice Cream in Ephraim, Door County, WI.

T For Two

 16” x 16”

I enjoy incorporating Scrabble letter tiles in my mosaics and I love puns.  On this piece, I’ve combined the two, to create a teapot pouring ‘T.’

If you remove the lid to the teapot, you’ll find it is filled with ‘tea.’

Take Some More Tea

 15 ¾” x 15 ¼”

The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in Alice in Wonderland inspired this mosaic.  The lid of the tea pot is removable and if you look inside, you’ll find it is filled with ‘tea.’  The tea is being poured into a mismatched set of china, which is how I’ve always pictured the tea party.

This beautiful tea set was languishing at St. Vincent de Paul.  It cried out to be used in a three dimensional mosaic.

Watering the Flowers II

11″ x 14″

These tiny pots and watering can were too adorable to ignore when I found them at St. Vincent de Paul’s.

If you look inside the pots, you’ll find there is ‘soil’ inside to keep the flowers healthy and blooming forever.  The flowers are made of millefiori.

Light blue stained glass shading to dark blue. The face is framed in white while the outer edges are framed in dark blue. The water is silver Van Gogh glass. The piece is finished with navy blue grout.

Watering the Flowers IV

 13 ¼” x 20 ¾”

The pots on this mosaic are just big enough to hold air plants.  You can see them nestled into the ‘dirt’ through the clear pots.  Plants with millefiori flowers peek out behind them.  If you prefer not to have the air plants, the millefiori flowers are even more striking on their own.

Do you see the tiny millefiori bee, butterfly and ladybug?

There’s nothing worse than getting ready to enjoy a nice bottle of wine, only to realize you don’t have a corkscrew.  You’ll never have to worry about that with this mosaic.

I’ve never seen a corkscrew like the one I used in this mosaic before.  It is certainly unusual.

This is my most popular design and I can’t keep it in stock.  Although I’ve made several pieces with the same basic design, each is unique, with different wine glasses, backgrounds and collections of corks.
