Detail of bamboo mosaic in progress

This is a detail of the bamboo mosaic I’m finishing up. These small movable bamboo rings slide along flexible bamboo strands. You could see the fine angle I cut into the edges of the strands, and get a glimpse of why these mosaics are labor-of-love-intensive. Its as much about the details as anything. The background is a series of bamboo strips, over which I painted a glaze of burnt umber paint. This laid the groundwork for a texture I wanted to create, by scratching and cutting into the paint with a sharp blade.
