Mosaic Dragonfly

Jeff and I have just finished this guy:

He has auto safety glass wings, held firmly with copper wires:

And the same type of glass for the eyes…we carefully shattered the window glass (which has a plastic layer between two layers of glass).  Jeff had built the metal frame many years ago, and it lived in our garden…unembellished but growing a rusted patina.

I used sparkly iridescent glass for the body….

  1. Thank you all for your encouraging words! I think more auto safety glass and dragon flies are in our future. This one was a complete experiment and we hope to improve the design. Patrice asked me how big he is…. approximately 2 feet long with a wingspan of 3 feet.
