Splash

2017  Commission

 

“Splash” - made from re-cycled plastic motel room keys, 24" x 36"

 

Designed and created by Rochelle Rose-Schueler of Wild Rose Artworks

 

Because I work on mosaics in non-traditional materials, I was asked to design a mosaic for a client using a pile of plastic motel keys that she had collected from all of her travel for work.  She wanted the design to have a wine theme.  I made two drawings for her related to a wine theme and we decided to go forward with the design of flowing wine splashing into a wine glass.

 

It was a fun challenge to find the colors I needed for the mosaic in the various plastic keys and to cut them in a way to create movement and flow with the tesserae.
