I got a ‘wild hair’ today and decided that, instead of hanging this piece, World-wide, INSIDE while it is waiting to go out to a show , I would display it OUTSIDE. That is the beauty of mosaic- it is fairly easy to make a mosaic that is both light-weight and weather-proof. My house is constructed like a series of stacked boxes. This hanging location is in a niche, so it is protected from all but the most virulent of hail storms.
The dynamism of light and shadows moving across the face of the mosaic when the wind is blowing adds an element of unpredictability which I enjoy.
