Silly Birds Bench

2014  Birds in the Garden Exhibition

Sisters Art Works private art exhibition – Sisters, Oregon

 

“Silly Birds Bench” – Exterior ceramic tile, concrete 15” x 32”

 

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 “Silly Birds Bench” is a 32” concrete bench inlaid with exterior ceramic tile.  I made a very colorful and whimsical design to appeal to children or adults with a youthful mindset.  I used classical mosaic andamento in this piece, specifically Opus Palladianum, Opus Vermiculatum, and Opus Sectile to give it a more modern feel.
