Finished Duck Mosaic

Posted by crazymosaics (My Page) on

Hello all,

I finally finished the duck!!! YIPPPEEEE!!!!! It's made with bronze, gold, copper and red Van Gogh glass with the design made in red mirrored glass. It was a tedious process but worth it in the long run. I charged my friend $100 and she paid with no problem. I probably could have charged more but she's a good friend. Please let me know what you think.

I also entered the duck in the Art Glass Festival Contest. If you guys have a free moment can you please vote for Sunny Ray (the name of the duck :) ) Just click on the link below. This is the first time I've ever entered a contest or charged for something.

This is sooo nice! I like how the neat 'brick' pattern on the front contrasts with the randomness on the wings. Great colors with the wood, and I like the organic look of your swirls (artistic). I don't know much about pricing, but since this was a good friend, I'd say $100 is a fair price especially if you're both happy about it. I definitely would've priced it higher though if selling it to a non-friend :)

Oh, you did such a fantastic job on that, CRAZY. It looks so rich looking. Doncha just love red w/gold, and the VG glass is wonderful w/your red. Oh, YES - the price could be a lot higher for a non-friend. WONDERFUL project.
