Illustration Turned into a Mosaic

"In Stripes", stained glass on wood, 24" x 18", 2008  sold

I based the above mosaic of off Gosia Polkowska's self-portrait titled "In Stripes". Gosia (my older sister) creates funky characters using the paint bucket program.  Visit Obscure Designs for more images.

I love her illustrations and feel that they can translate well into mosaics. The solid colors in the picture can easily became a pattern or can be cut out as a solid piece of glass - like the stripes in Gosia's shirt. I often like to add a few larger pieces of glass to show more of the natural pattern in the glass.   I also enjoy the contrast between smaller and bigger shapes.
