My journey through a coastal watershed finishes at the water’s edge. Before it reaches the sea, the water that has flowed down from coastal foothils and through wetlands collects in coastal lakes, ponds and streams. Before it moves from there to the rivers that empty into the Pacific Ocean, these important water bodies provide a respite for migrating salmon and habitat for aquatic plants like these pond lilies.
This mosaic is made with stained glass and smalti, the traditional hand-made mosaic glass of Venice and Cuernavaca, Mexico. Each piece was hand-cut to fit. The mosaic artwork is 12″w x 24″ tall, signed on the back and ready to hang indoors or outdoors (above freezing temperatures).
