a Muse #1. Has to be Marlene Hurley Marshall author of the book “Making Bits & Pieces Mosaics” – Circa 1998 – all it took was a few pages to inspire me to glue objects, china and glass. The book is out of print but copies are still available online. Making Bits & Pieces Mosaics
I couldn’t get enough of her bits and pieces mosaic tile table and ended up creating a few of my own.
Making Bits & Pieces Mosaics Look for Marlene’s book … you’ll love it. #2. My fourth grade teacher Mrs. Kloth who loved sharing her passion for art, found objects and glue. #3. Simon Rodia “The Watts Tower of Simon Rodia” #4. Laurel Skye Designs #5. Isaiah Zagar #6. Beatrice Wood #7. Grandma Prisbrey’s and her Bottle Village #8. Hannah Hoch #9. Joseph Cornell #10. Andy Warhol
Quite a mixed bag, if I do say so myself.
