As I watched the partial solar eclipse from my garden this year through the filter of hazy clouds, I experienced the same exciting feeling I had whilst watching the total eclispse in 1999. It was like watching a silent magical dance, and each peep of the sun felt like time had stopped still, meanwhile the garden was gradually cast into shadow with a strange eerie half light.
These are a small series of total and partial eclipses, made using slate and genuine gold leaf glass tile (which has a lovely blue glass edge) . They are presented as a treasure in a smart white box frame which has glass positioned half way down the frame instead of at the top.
If you would like an animated series of these (perhaps 5 or 7 in the different stages of the eclipse please contact me, I would love to make one for you!)
The mosaic is made for an indoor space, it is not suitable for outdoors.
