Earthly Pleasures is the current online show at Crafthaus where I have three mosaics, all wall-mounted pieces. “Bamboo” is a mirror frame consisting of bamboo; each tile is cut and the edges are slightly beveled. “Pisces Rising” and “Genesis” are wood mosaics that are made from the scraps that woodworkers discard every day. I’ve gotten quite an assortment of woods from these folks.
