UNDER SEA FIREPLACE MOSAIC UNDER SEA FIREPLACE MOSAIC
In December 2013 my landlord gave me permission to demolish the lava from my fireplace and create whatever I wanted.  I rented a demolition hammer (hand held jack hammer) and removed the lava.  What a chore!  It has taken me 19 months and approximately 1000 hours to create this piece!   

Throughout my apartment I have black and gray tile on the floor. Because I did not have any matching tile to place on the floor in front of the fireplace I purchased a solid piece of black granite.  I also painted the firebox with a metallic copper high heat spray paint.  It picks up the copper glass that is within the dark blue waves. Finally, I made the mantle myself.

LIFE CAN BE A SCREAM LIFE CAN BE A SCREAM
I was inspired to create a very unique piece of art.  I took Edvard Munch's "The Scream" and recreated it on canvas.  I used #2 glass 1/4" bugle beads.

Dimensions: 40" High by 30" Wide unframed and 47" High by 37" Wide framed. It took about 500 hours and almost three years to complete!  There are approximately a little over 100,000 1/4" bugle beads on this piece.  That's right over 100,000 beads!
