Heartistry is the fourth in a four-mural collaborative series created by a global group of mosaic artists and being donated to: Providence Park Hospital Novi, Michigan
Each heart mosaic was composed on a mesh background in the individual artists studio and shipped to Michigan where it was then incorporated into the larger mural. The multiple and varied pieces were pulled together utilizing an intricate and detailed background.
Heartistry is perhaps the most literal of the four murals. The subjects of hearts and artistry are combined in a loving tapestry of red, white, and silver to remind us of our connection to each other through one thing we all share a heart.
Each of the pieces within Heartistry was designed to represent hearts. In each design there may be one heart, many hearts, or just a portion of a heart. Designs could be bold, busy, swirly, clean or simple, but only three colors could be used: red, white, and silver. While there was no requirement to use all three colorseach piece was required to have some red in it. Materials used in Heartistry include: stained glass, vitreous tile, tempered glass, mirror, dichroic glass, fused glass, plate glass, ceramic shapes, paper, flatware, metal key, jewelry: earrings, bracelet, pendants, charms, glass marbles, millefiori, polymer clay, ballchain, bb pellets, clockwork gears, and beads of coral, metal, glass, and onyx.
