Book Mosaic #14 underway!

I'm so excited that this is my final large mosaic for the book!  This is a small detail shot of the mosaic, which will be 15x24".  This bit here is only about 2x3", which is why I had to use millefiori for Raymi's eye - it was just too small to cut glass for otherwise!  This mosaic will be pages 27 and 28.  Page 29 will be a half page, so the mosaic will be 15x12" instead.  I will probably make one or two really small mosaics for the end pages, if I have time.  I need to finish the book by May or June so it can go to the printers by summer.  I will be announcing on my blog when the book is ready, but if you'd like to have a postcard with an image from the book mailed to you, email me here or fill out the mailing list form on the right of the blog.  I'm getting close!!

This adorable miniature Schnauzer is Quincy, commissioned by a friend who also commissioned me six years ago to create a mosaic of her daughters.  This mosaic is 8x10" and was made with stained glass and a little bit of millefiori.  The mosaic below entitled "Sisters" is what I created for her in 2007.  It is 24x36" and was installed in their garden.  They are such a lovely family and it has been wonderful working with them on both projects.  Thanks, Laura!!
