2014 Birds in the Garden Exhibition
Sisters Art Works private art exhibition – Sisters, Oregon
“Hummingbird Garden Bench” – Exterior ceramic tile, concrete 15” x 42” x 3”
Designed and created by Rochelle Rose-Schueler of Wild Rose Artworks
In 2014, I was invited to participate in a private exhibition by watercolor artist Kathy Deggendorfer along with 2 other artists in Sisters, Oregon. The exhibition Birds In the Garden brought together four artists working in watercolor, ceramic tile, fused glass, and mosaic. I created several pieces of art for this exhibition in either a bird theme or a garden theme.
My “Hummingbird Garden Bench” is a 42” concrete bench with an exterior ceramic tile and glass mosaic. My colorful and whimsical design of floating hummingbirds hopes to make a happy place to contemplate in the garden. I used classical mosaic andamento in this piece, specifically Opus Palladianum, Opus Vermiculatum, and Opus Sectile and some contemporary laying patterns to give it a more modern feel.
