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