Seaglass Lobster Mosaic

Seaglass Lobster Mosaic

~ sea glass project submitted by Timothy Larson in South Yorkshire, England

I have been collecting sea glass for over a year.

Having several container fulls of glass, I finally decided to do something with it all.

Not really being an artistic person I decided to make a 5x7 inch mosaic mounted in a shadow box.

I was so thrilled with my first attempt, I decided to go large and am happy to say that I have just completed my second mosaic which is 12x16 and pictures a lobster.

This time around I wired a light box and attached it with buckles.

Just today I brought my masterpiece to work and my friends were amazed.

I even shared my mosaic with the nice lady at the stained glass shop where I bought my solder and she too loved it.

After investing over 30 hours in this last project I look forward to my next endeavor of a 18x24 inch piece of a tide pool.

It is truly fun being creative, and most of all it makes me feel good to see that I can create something so beautiful.

P.S. I am also including a picture of the lamp I made out of the lobster mosaic which includes a self contained electric light box and a picture of my 5x7 inch mosaic that was my first attempt at art with sea glass.

As I was thinking about my own sea glass collection yesterday, I was thinking of this exact idea. You did such a great job!

Did you use glue to hold them up in the shadowbox? If so, what kind of glue.
