A Mosaic Tree!



A few months ago, my previous Spanish professor from Kennesaw State got in touch with me through facebook and asked me if I would create a custom mosaic window for her. She told me I could do whatever I wanted, but that she wanted it to be a tree. So once I found the right size window, I got to work!

I started laying out all my stones, and once I got everything laid out how I wanted it, I started gluing each individual piece onto the panes.


Cell phone pictures...could be better!


Once the glue had time to cure, I went outside and got ready to add the grout.




This is the scariest part for me because it looks like I ruined the window every time!


 But I didn't! After the grout dried, I cleaned and scraped all of the excess grout off of EACH INDIVIDUAL STONE... my hands were wore out! But it was totally worth it!


I dropped it off with its new owner this morning, and she loved it! She even posted this photo on her facebook page! I hope she'll send me more when she gets it officially hung up!



If any of y'all are interested in a window, I am happy to talk about making one for you! Email me at upcycleddownriver at gmail dot com or contact me on facebook via the Upcycled Downriver page!
