Love Serve Meditate Realize

Saturday, Sep 01, 2012 Mosaic Project – Part 6

Two of our yoga students, Vince and Laurie, donated some incredible crystals, rocks, and figurines for our mosaic project. Vince is a geologist and knows his way around all things igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. He picked out several beauties for our front ledge and Marydale placed them using her famous intuition as a guide. There are amethyst and clear quartz crystals, as well as rocks shot through with veins of green. There’s even a small stone turtle peeking out from behind one of the flower pots.

Once the stones were positioned, Lisbeth cemented them into place and considered how best to set them off. Since the afternoon light was already adding new life and dimension to our birdbath by reflecting off the mirrored fragments in the mosaic, she decided to surround the rocks and crystals with shards of mirror in a myriad of shapes and sizes. The results are spectacular. The entire area shimmers like polished silver, reflecting the crystals and casting light in all directions. It still needs to be grouted, but the beauty of Lisbeth’s vision is already evident.
