New materials are gifts to my creative spirit, and Cosmos glass tiles have a universe of possibility. Said to made of 80% recycled black glass, with a metallic iridescence flashed onto the surface, looking like constellations of tiny stars.
Even better, in my love of the imperfect, the seconds, broken or oddly, are called “Meteorites” as if they burned through earth’s atmosphere! The center of this Red Blanket Flower Mandala begins in coppery orange Cosmos.
The iridescence reminds me of when I looked longingly at the eyeshadows on the drugstore cosmetic shelves. After high school, my eye shadow use dropped drastically, but I still love looking at the compacts of shimmering colors. My attraction to adornment has moved to more permanent kinds.
