Pacific Seahorse

Shonda Bottke's avatar Shonda Bottke

This 8" x 10" mosaic is made of art glass, stained glass and millefiori. I recycled a "clearance" picture frame for the substrate. I began creating this mosaic with the intent of donating it to the Aquarium of the Pacific's Sea Fare Charity Auction 2013. Unfortunately, one of my old friends passed away before I could complete this mosaic for the auction. The piece evolved from the original concept after her untimely passing and I have since dedicate this mosaic to my friend Kimberly Kendrick. She was a fierce friend, a beach buddy, and also loved the ocean and its inhabitants. It is my hope that my mosaic will motivate and inspire others to want to protect the ocean, lakes, rivers, and streams. Thank you!
