Rainbow Trout Glass Mosaic, 2006
Sicis Iridium glass tile, glass taxidermy eye, copper, Hardibacker substrate
9″ H x 21.25″ W x 1.5″
This mosaic is available for purchase in my store.
Most of the tile used on this mosaic is from the Iridium line of glass from Sicis. As the light or viewing angle changes, the iridescent surface of the tile closely resembles the scales of a live fish. The photo above shows the iridescent sheen. The second pic shows the copper banding that finishes and protects the mosaic.
The mosaic is set with mortar on a Hardibacker substrate over plywood and finished around the edges with copper banding.
