This handmade mosaic of a Pacific Rhododendron is crafted with beautiful stained glass. Some pieces may display the rolled edge of the stained glass sheet, and some are highly textured. This mosaic was made with no grout between the glass pieces to muddy the effect of the highly textured material, creating a more 3-dimensional effect than grouted mosaics. Each piece was cut by hand with traditional tools and applied to the tile backing with charcoal-tinted thinset mortar. This 6" square unique piece was created as part of a series of works by Joanne Daschel for an exhibit, "60 Works in 60 Days" for which she made one mosaic each day. There is a companion mosaic of the rhododendron in smalti, also listed here available for sale. There are a very limited number of pieces still available from this exhibit and they are all listed in this shop. The backing material is ceramic tile, the edges are painted matte black and there is a d-ring hanger installed on the back. It is signed by the artist and bears the day-number from the 60 days.
