3D Torso

This is my first 3 dimensional mosaic. Exclusively made of regular and irridescent glass and mirror tiles, this female torso is adorned with young fern-leaf looking tattoos inspired from those worn by Pict and Scottish tribes of Northern Britain of the Roman Era.

The technique is very different from the one I generally use, every thing is directly set on the fame. You also have to accommodate for the fact that ceramic - or glass, does not bend to fol,low the curvature of the frame...

I also used a different type of grouting on this piece - I wanted a copper coloured grout - which is not available on the market. I had to produce it myself - some research, some experiment... The result is beautiful.

Hope you enjoy it...
