Angel Baby

What is that saying again about the devil and idle hands? I know this. I do. Keep the hands busy. That’s how to keep the demons away. That’s my version. Usually it’s something to do with the house. Paint a room. Install some wood floors. Venetian plaster. Retile the shower. That’s how I got started with this mosaic I’m working on right now. It was my first mosaic and was actually turning out so well I decided not to put it in a shower of a house I intended to sell one day. I did something else, a quick mosaic of a compass and put that one in the shower.

So this one, I intend to frame it and hang it on a wall somewhere. It is painstakingly time consuming. To shape every piece, I use a tile saw and a tile biter. It’s all made from scraps. Leftover tile from a floor or shower, broken cups and saucers.

The playing card is so you’ll have an idea of the size of this piece.

  1. The first word that pops into my head when I see this is “patience” I envy people that can do art like this, I lucked out on the patience gene.

    Really amazing, Kitty.

  2. Thanks Hunny and AJ.
    You’re right, it does take a lot of patience. And safety goggles. The tile nippers send flying shards of tile everywhere. It makes a big mess, like working with broken glass.
