An abstract piece of mosaic art using many little mosaic discs and reclaimed jewellery.
Influenced by the 'Pebbles in a jar' story the larger jewels represent the important things in life such as family, friends, home, education etc. The smaller more chaotic little discs are the things that surround our lives everyday such as popping to the shop, mowing the lawn, cooking, cleaning, love, watching the television. The little golden balls represent the things that make the larger things extra special, memories, a view from a window, a scent, taste, laughter.
Of course the jewels, discs and balls can mean different things to different people. In life many things remain constant whilst being surrounded by lots of little tasks and sometimes we have to refocus to ensure the little things don't overwhelm.
This mosaic is upon a pine board and placed in a black floating box frame ready to be hung. The mosaic itself is 20 cm by 20 cm. The whole piece, including frame measures approx 23 cm by 23 cm
