Virtual tour

Today we'll take a virtual tour of one artist's mosaic creations. Click the link below to go to the flickr account of onthebrinkdesign. This artist has some pieces that look like they belong in the Alhambra, some that are very modern, almost Art Deco, and some that are very classic in theme, but more modern in execution. There is some really stunning work here. Also, notice the use of tempered glass in some pieces. Broken tempered glass applied over paint, paper, or gold leaf, etc has a very distinct look. Very crinkly, and if the colors are right, can look like water. Have fun!
