Bluebird

Object: Blue Bird Stepping Stone           Sold

Materials: Vitreous Glass Tesserae with Dark Grey Grout on Concrete

Dimensions: 17.5" Diameter

Method: Indirect (glued to paper and then transferred to the bench after pregrouting)

Using the indirect method may seem like overkill for such a small piece, but I like the freedom in changing the tiles after they have been glued to the paper. This is useful for subtle color changes or to fix mistakes. I averted a big mistake on this stone. The circular border had too many bobbles for my taste, so I pulled off the entire border and was able to redo it.
