Thank you to all who voted for their favorite formation of the glass plates back in November’s post where I asked for help! You have no idea how crazy it made me to have the plates lying on the floor instead of hung on the wall for all this time.
The final version, like most art, developed itself due to a few mechanical issues and the sheer size of it on the wall. The #2 photo got the most votes, which made me happy because I was leaning toward that one from the start. The final product is #2 with one plate missing, and two plates switched places.
It is a very large piece of art…and a complete departure from anything I have ever had on a wall before. But it is HAPPY! It reminds me of beautiful flowers looking out over the room. It took only about 5 minutes to completely fall in love with them. (And took only 6.5 hours and an unexpected trip to Home Depot to install them!)
Thank you all who voted…I hope you like them. It was fun to do that post and see what people thought. I loved reading the comments…especially the ones where people explained WHY they liked the one they liked. I am so grateful to all who responded ❤
I decided to include a photo of the coffee table below. It was an art project of mine that took me quite a while to complete. It is a mosaic under the glass. I have done glass mosaics before and did not want to deal with cuts and shards so I tried to come up with a different medium that would look good but not hurt me! One night I dreamt of “ribbons.” When I woke, I thought it was a crazy idea…but then I thought I would give it a try.
The ribbons turned out kind of neat, I think. It took FOREVER to complete though. It is 2.5′ x 2.5′. Each piece of the ribbon had to be cut off the roll and then glued on individually. I, sometimes, choose projects without thinking it through completely!! 🙂
Thanks for looking!
