Over the Hills and Far Away is the title of this piece, completed for the Art of Mosaic 2009 Mini Salon at the Somerville Museum, Somerville, MA. It is 11" X 6 ". The moon is slightly smaller than a dime, and three of the four stars are 1/8" diameter, one star is 3/16". The stars were cut from textured silver mirror and ground down to that size with a glass grinder. How did I hold on to them? I have no idea. But I think I have no more fingerprints and might have to revisit the notion of a life of crime. The funniest thing is that while working on those miniscule pieces, I was reminded of a fever dream I had when I was 6. I was trying to make doll clothes, but the doll clothes kept getting smaller and smaller until my fingers felt like huge sausages in comparison, and I couldn’t hold on to them anymore. Good times…..
