Modern Masterful Mosaics

May 26, 2010, 05:00 am  Posted by Lark

I love mosaics. There’s something about assembling little pieces of tiles, glass, shells, stone, or even dishes into an entirely new reincarnation that appeals to me. Plus there’s such a sense of permanence. After all, the earliest know mosaics (in Ubaid, Mesopotamia) date back to the second half of the 3rd millennium, B.C.

Like many crafts, mosaics has morphed with styles from new visionaries. Irina Charny is one of those artists with a wonderfully fresh aesthetic on an age-old art. Her willowy ladies with their free flowing tresses (which in some cases are home to colorful feathered friends) are my favorites, but following closely behind are two of her commissioned pieces, Floral Backsplash and Tree of Life. Check them out below. Yeah, can you say incredibly intricate?
