Creating wonderful images with mixed media has been a part of the fine arts for centuries. If some of that mix simply involves attaching multiple small objects onto one larger piece, the work can then literally become a mosaic. Recognizing mosaics as a true art form was the inspiration for Nancy Wolff’s garden installation, Harvest Moon. The patterns represent the beauty of autumn in the Midwest, and the fleeting imagery that comes and goes as quickly as it does.
This piece was created with stained glass, iridescent tiles, and other found objects, all mounted onto a clear glass base. The 36 x 60” mosaic is displayed in the sculpture garden within its own cedar wood frame stand. It can also be removed from the framing to become free standing, or to be used as a permanent design installation.
