Pink Peacock

Pink Peacock

by Robin Brownfield

Ceramic, glass tiles, ceramic flowers, beads, wood, papier-mâché, glitter, grout

Inspiration: This was more of a challenge for "what can I make without cutting tiles and glass?" I recently had hand surgery  and couldn't create mosaics (or anything) for several months. I spent my time recuperating by constructing the form for this 3D wall hanging using only whole tiles, or leftover pieces of tiles I had already cut. I couldn't handle a glass cutter or tile nipper, and it was actually quite difficult making this with a disabled hand. I chose to make the peacock pink and white, because I could, but more because those were the colors I had at my disposal.
