“Shapes of things to come…”

Posted on by Norine

Poplar wood mosaics
painted, hand-beveled and sanded

These are some shapes I’ve been working on for some of the next mirror frames (see previous posts on these). It’s a tedious process involving lots and lots of sanding. I use the band saw to work out some free-form shapes, then hand-craft with an assortment of home-made sanding tools. Each piece has got to be beautiful on its own. Eventually I’ll work the rest of the mosaic around a few of these; not a pre-determined design. That would take the fun out of it for me.

You never know what will inspire you – in this case it was my lava lamp!
