Piercing eyes and dark vertical stripes on orange-brown fur; the artist has brought alive the image of this magnificent creature – the tiger – through a piece of mosaic art.
The artist is extremely grateful to initiatives like ‘Save our Tigers’, which she believes are much needed to preserve our fragile ecosystem.
Mosaic art piece is a labour of love – one that takes significant time and patience and is a challenge to achieve, considering the static nature of glass (mosaic). It could take anywhere between one and two months depending on the size and the intricacy involved. While it is definitely an elaborate process, the four key steps include the following.
- Composing and designing an outline
- Manual cutting of mosaic tiles and stained-glass pieces to the desired shape; thereafter, the pieces must be segregated depending on size, followed by pasting them onto the substrate
- Once firmly set, the crevices in the piece must be filled in – a process called grouting
- The final step is polishing the artwork to perfection
