Exhibit Photos

The opening of my exhibit was, for me at least, a great success. Lots of people came, many of them friends, but also people I didn't know, reporters from the city paper Le Progrès, the director of the Salon D'Hiver, just back from New York, the director of the cultural center, as well as people from the neighborhood.

I had my picture taken for the paper, explained my process to those who asked, tried to answer the often-asked question "How long does it take to make one of these?" and... sold four of mosaics! You can read the article here.

Here are a few photos of pieces I've never put in my etsy shop, some because I could never part with them, others because they are too fragile or heavy to mail.

You'll recognize the one above: these are the ladies in my etsy shop banner: Blue Ladies.

This small piece is one of my rare orange pieces with stars cut from a red-orange serving platter. It's called Libation.

Above is a large mosaic called Water Birds. You'll see the ladies who modeled for my blog banner and the birds of my avatars!

And this is my moon goddess, made from the back of the red-orange serving plate mentioned above. I try to get as many pieces from the same plate as I can, no waste! I have more photos of never-before-seen mosaics for the next post.


  1. stunning work Laura and a big congratulations for your successful exhibition and also for the feature :-)

    I truly love your style of mosaics .. each is different and unique .. your use of colour is bold and strong and the ceramic pieces are simply gorgeous!!

  2. Yes, I love your work, too, Laura! And Kerrin, yours too! Both of you have a completely unique style, and I can't wait to do a mosaic treasury for etsy, featuring mosaic artists...

  3. Way to go on the 4 sales! I bet you were on cloud 9 for days. I like the waterbirds - but all are done is such beautiful colors and designs. BTW- MOTH was on the FP again! :-)
