In the Studio

It’s been a fun week in the studio. That’s always a good thing!

I have quite a few photos to share of what’s been completed, some are listed and one in particular will stay on my wall perhaps forever which is more than okay by me. While I like to make room for more creativity in my life and make available for sale most of what I do, sometimes it’s nice just to make mosaics for the sake of making them to enjoy.

First, the newest listings for the *Holiday Shop* section.

Holiday Red Glitter Mosaic Serving Tray – Close up

Expect Miracles” has been completed and is on my wall where I can see it and enjoy it. I’m quite pleased with this mixed media mosaic. Taking some gypsum boards I found curbside, although not perfectly square or oblong, still more than sufficient for a mosaic, and using left over cement and a piece of plastic used to hold a bottle of perfume as my mold, a few shells, a broken dish, broken ring and broken mirror, adding some awesome stained glass, a ceramic heart and my own polymer clay word charm I created a piece of art. I’m proud of this one.

“Expect Miracles” Mixed Media Mosaic
15-1/4 x 9-1/4 inches
Stained glass, shells, glazed ceramic heart, recycled mirror, polymer clay, vitreous glass tiles, broken dishes, molded cement, broken jewelry.

I’m working on mosaic mobiles to give as gifts with more pieces of gypsum board I saved from the dump. I’m fairly sure those folks that will be receiving these don’t read this blog but in case someone should see it who will be getting one, you still don’t know which one you’re getting. Neener. 🙂

Once both sides are covered, string and some cool beads will be added for hanging by a window or where ever they want to hang it. These are quick and fun to make and I’m enjoying doing them very much.

The sun and I had a play date the other day and I took some photos of the stained glass items on my window sill. Aren’t these cool?

Playing with the sun. Boy oh boy, I love stained glass.

Mosaic Stained Glass Candle Holder, Luminary, Blue, Green, Votive, Lantern, Shelter, Blue Water, Home Spa, Great Hostess Gift Idea – 3 1/2 inches
Price: $47.62

Many scrap pieces of soothing blue and green stained glass and some really unusual wavy pieces of clear textured glass were hand cut to cover this Mosaic Votive Candle Luminary. Grouted in charcoal gives it a stained glass window look about it.

This Candle Luminary reminds me of soothing blue water; the perfect setting for a spa at home.

These Lanterns or Shelters as many call them make a great one-of-a-kind housewarming or hostess gift, great for the office at home or for a co-worker. Fits any decor making it a great wedding gift.

Comments from customers who have purchased luminaries made by EarthMotherMosaics:

“I have placed my new blue mosaic candle holder in a bright, shiny window and the colors that come through it are magnificent! When the sun hits it, the color bounces off of the walls. Thank you so much – it’s beautiful!”~Terri

“I have been looking for these stained glass candle holders for a week! I checked out OVER 30 different web sites, looking for that ‘special look and vibe’!! And yours, by far, was the best and the ones that really STOOD out! They are both soooo beautiful! I could not make up my mind, so I ‘had’ to buy both of them!!”~Bob

All of my Mosaic Candle Luminaries change appearance depending on where you place it. My personal preference and for those customers who have purchased these luminaries is to place them in a window with natural light gleaming through it. Candlelight can give a corner of any room a warm glow. Set it in the center of a table, sitting outside under cover or while soaking in a hot bath, my luminaries help sooth the spirit. Use it to hold flowers or other treasures.

Sealed but not waterproof. Do not submerge in water.

NEVER leave a lit candle unattended. Clean inside of holder once wax has cooled completely. An easy way to keep the inside clean from wax build up is to place a piece of plastic from a discarded lid cut to fit inside. Once candle is finished, turn upside down and the plastic and candle debris come out easily.

WARNING: keep away from harsh chemical cleaners. Although I use a grout sealant, grout will change appearance and often start to fall off of the holder once strong glass cleaner or other chemical cleaners are applied. It also gives dark grout a white splotchy appearance in some instances. Best advice I can give you about my luminaries and cleaning them: wipe with a dry cloth or use a slightly damp cloth with a very mild detergent.
