Red Eyed Bird

There is a true but unlikely story about his piece.  I was working in my studio, and a friend stopped by.  He was on his way to the hot glass shop when he saw the mosaic in progress, and just happened to have a red glass eye in his backpack which he gave me!  

There are multiple grout colors in this piece which was the result of using up what my students had left over on grouting night!  The results turned out well, and the piece lived in a high end restaurant until it was sold.  It is now prominently displayed over a mantlepiece in a stunning NJ home.  There are words hidden in the vine that runs across the panel.
