Merle Art Design ~ "Tree of Life"

   Merle Bouffard of Merle Art Design recently shared some images of a mosaic she completed for an assisted living facility in Canfield, Ohio. The "Tree of Life" is an 8 foot by 12 foot mosaic feature in the main lobby of The Inn at Ironwood. "I'm thrilled to have been able to create something for the residents there to enjoy."

Detail: "Tree of Life," Italian Glass, copper, steel, No Days Mosaic Mesh

The tree sculpture consisted of several pieces of steel colorized with patinas and pigment. The leaves are steel covered with Italian glass mosaic combined with copper leaves individually hand painted and colorized with metal stains. The result was a spectacular yet tranquil scene.
