Sheila Gregory and I are excited to be taking part in The Brain Project for the Baycrest Foundation. Baycrest is doing awesome work changing the future of brain health. For this project, they have provided us with a cast brain ready to be transformed. We’re working on a butterfly mosaic mounted on the raw brain casting. Here’s a couple process shots. We still have a lot of work to do!
This mosaic is being made with Italian glass (smalti) tiles. Once all the tiles are in place the mosaic will be grouted. There will be 5 monarch butterflies, including one on the underside of the brain.
We have been creating mosaic projects together for several years. You can see what we’ve been up to on the Long Branch Mosaics pages. We do all kinds of custom mosaic-work and we’d be happy to talk about future projects big or small.
