Yeah, it is, but we were discussing whether or not it was technically "art" (as ridiculous as debates about that can get). You have to make stuff to get good at making stuff, and hey, there'll be diamonds in that shit if you press it hard enough. I think? Science?

This is a work in progress.  As you can see I did not do the grout yet.  I have to decide how to frame it first.  I think a frame will look good on this one but I don't know what it will be made of yet or what colour.  I'm thinking black or a very narrow aluminum trim unlike the other ones posted earlier that I framed.

Not bad. I honestly didn't care for the last one, but this one is pretty nice.

That mosaic reminded me of Jaws, which gave me an idea for an awesome suggestion IMO. Mosaic movie posters.

Oh fuck I never showed you guys the other shark I made 2 months ago.

This was it as a WIP, but it basically looks like this now.  It totally rules.

I was looking around for the first shark.

Again, very good work.

If you wanted to, you could probably sell these at a craft fair, or ebay.

Trying to set up an Etsy actually.

I have actually sold 6 mosaics.  Since I started making mosaics I have made 22 of them.  I've sold 4 pot-holders (approx. 6" diameter round mosaics with pads on the bottom, great for holding pots) and then I sold a little mosaic of a roller derby helmet to one of my teammates and I sold my Red-Winged Black Bird mosaic.

Not much for the small ones.  $15 each for the 5 small ones I sold, $40 for a larger (but still kinda small) one.

Uhh okay I made more:



Image

7½" x 10"
Shark Astronaut.  Hard to tell but the gold part is his helmet visor, he's in a space suit.





Image

7½" x 10"
Sunset.  I've never done a lady like this before.  What I did was I freehanded a drawing onto the wood then I cut pieces to fit it.  I'm super happy with this one, it's really pretty IRL.  The colours are much deeper and her dress is actually iridescent.
