Asian Face #2
Asian face # 2 is the second of a series of portraits of the same intriguing Asian face. It is realized in a grayscale of regular and iridescent 8 mm glass tiles, with a border of Italian bright red, orange and yellow 12 mm tiles.
The original design dates from 2015 when I was experimenting with Opus Pixellatum. The first Asian Face was a grayscale one, encased in a beautiful golden travertine slab.
Because I like the mystery behind this face I decided in the fall of 2017 to work on a series of variations on the same theme.
Those for pieces are strictly realized in Opus Pixellatum. In 2018 I plan to realize several other pieces using both pus Pixellatum and Tessellatum.
In 2017 I started offering training – online coaching and classroom seminars – on the use of those techniques to beginners and confirmed mosaicists and will keep doing so in 2018.
