The Finished Product ~ Thanks For Your Help!

20150104_195827

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!

❤ Lorrie

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. your room looks so cheerful Lorrie, I love it. And how wonderful that you had an idea to create something that didn’t hurt you. And your picture looks like a mosaic, I would have never guessed it was ribbons. how very creative!

    1. 🙂 Thank you!! That is funny to read …isn’t it? Yes…I love glass…but I have been “cut” a time or two working in the medium 🙂 It was my only project in ribbons…kind of like the sound of art made out of ribbons also. A couple friends keep telling me to make more, and I would love to…I just have so many projects that I have not finished…not to mention the time it takes here to blog!! Oh boy, I need a few more hours in the day (or maybe just need to manage my time better!)

      Thank you so much for commenting 🙂 Many blessings ❤

    1. Hi Tiny!! Thank you so much 🙂 Yes…it was quite labor intensive. I didn’t break any speed records getting it done either!!! I am very “emotional” in my projects…I only work on what I feel inspired to. So that table took about 2 years…if you can believe that. Patience is not my strongest suit in life…except where art is concerned. I always seem to find a rather long painstaking art form that stays in my world for much time 🙂 Hope all is super in your world…many blessings!! ❤
