Shoulda, coulda, woulda, but didn’t take a photo of the vintage Mackinac Island souvenir dish that I used in this piece. It was a cutie. Maybe next time. 😉
The Mackinac Island mosaic tile incense holder was created using brilliant blue ceramic tile, glossy white ceramic tile, silver tapestry tile, vintage blue china, white vintage china, a vintage Mackinac Island souvenir dish, gold glass gems, red glass gems, four square iridescent blue glass feet, stick incense holder and a red glass heart. All securely glued and grouted to to a 3/4″ thick MDF board that measures 4″ inches wide x 9″ inches long.
When a certain artist who creates windows, mirrors, tables & bowls decorated with images, glass, trinkets, tile fragments & often hidden words in the designs was asked what her artwork meant to her she said: “I think I like it because it tells so much about my story.” Or anyone’s life, for that matter… “Life smashes things to bits and you glue it back together to make something beautiful with the pieces.” – author unknown
