Dragonfly

Object: Dragonfly Stepping Stone           Commission

Materials: Vitreous Glass Tesserae with Medium Black Grout on Concrete

Dimensions: 17.5" Diameter

Method: Direct onto a pre-cast stepping stone.

A commission from Tony for Karen to celebrate her birthday. I spoke to Tony about subject matter and color preferences. He also supplied me with a few pictures of his back yard where the stone would be placed. This was pivotal in not only the choice of colors but the particular design. Their yard is lush and green with sunken terracotta paved areas connected by slate paths. The subject of a dragonfly was requested but its exaggerated proportions and swoopyness was inspired by the seeing the photos. Their yard struck me like a secret hideaway with fairy like creatures flitting about.
