This mosaic was a custom order, commissioned as a gift.  The customers provided a photo of a special place that they had recently visited while on vacation in Newfoundland: the ancestral home of their 97 year old grandfather. Not only were they inspired by their memory of this spot because they remember seeing an iceberg through the channel and hundreds of salmon jumping right in front of them, but it’s also where the future recipients of this mosaic honeymooned!

This mosaic has so much meaning behind it that it took several rounds of putting together and taking apart, swapping out colours and rearranging until I felt it was ready.  Some of my favourite touches are the sparkly glass used for the tree line, and the iridescent blue glass used for the sky, as well as the reflections of the clouds and trees in the water.  I even used a little silver grout additive for the water to make it extra sparkly and reflective.  I’m so happy with how it turned out and I hope they are too!
