Six Owls and A Party

Six Owls and A Party, a hoot for the whole family!
Six Owls and A Party was two years in the making; from creating the mosaics, to getting them photographed, to writing and re-writing the story, and then to bringing everything together.
The original six, 1.5'x4', panels were made with glass beads, crystal rhinestones and thousands and thousands of Vitreous glass tiles, all hand cut (one at a time) then glued into place (one at a time). It was a labour of love.
