Kew Gardens Waterlily by Brenda Pokorny MOW1075





Kew Gardens Waterlily by Brenda Pokorny

To create this close-up view of a waterlily, I have used the centuries-old technique of cutting glass smalti with a hammer and hardie.  This technique dates to Byzantine times or before, when artisans cut stones and glass into tiny tesserae, using them to adorn walls, floors, and ceilings of some of the most beautiful churches in the world.

In this piece, I have interpreted one of my photos from Kew Gardens, London, England.  I call this technique "painting with glass".


Framed in a 6" x 6" patented aluminum EZFrame by WitsEnd Mosaics, shown below.  
Has D-ring for hanging,  or can be placed on a small plate stand/easel for tabletop display.
