April Flowers


April flowers………..tulips, to be precise 🙂  I had fun hand-cutting the simple lines of the tulips from the beautiful stained glass for this project.  The petals and leaves are opus sectile (large pieces or sections of glass) while the background is opus palladinium ( random cuts) and all hand-cut pieces.  The stems of the tulips are pre-cut tumbled stained glass pieces which makes for an interesting contrast, I think.  The seeds of the tulips are tiny metal balls cut from a piece of chain (used as pull chain for a ceiling fan or light).

April showers bring May flowers!  The town of St. George’s will be IN BLOOM on May 5th, I hope you can come for a visit, wander the narrow streets and browse the shops while you enjoy the burst of colour the flower displays put out by the store owners 🙂  Pieceworks Mosaic Art Studio will have a small display at the entrance.  Hope to see you then.
