To avoid being eaten by greedy birds, some of us bugs have a pretend face on our backs, to trick those big bullies. We’ve gotta do what we can to protect ourselves in this world!
I’ve really enjoyed making this little guy, using Smalti, hand cut by myself, to all fit perfectly together.
His colours are magnificent, they shimmer rainbow colours in different lights.
This piece is ready to be hung,
& I think it would look lovely in a baby’s nursery, or child’s room.
20 x 20 cm.

Smalti
Smalti (the plural of smalto) are specilised mosaic tesserae made from richly coloured glass. Originally developed for Byzantine mosaics, the glass contains metal oxides which produce an almost infinite range of colour possibilities. The molten glass is poured into flat slabs which are then broken into individual smalti with rough, irregular surfaces that may be pitted with air bubbles. A thin layer of gold leaf can be embedded in smalti to produce gold tesserae. Smalti mosaics are normally ungrouted.
