A Local Mosaic Artist Uses Global Village Accents

Posted by

Jennifer Kuhns sent us these lovely photos of a local mosaic piece that incorporates some of our glass bees, butterflies, dragonflies and ladybugs in the design!

  

She wrote: "I spent two days having kids create the design for three light post bases, then I translated the designs into mosaic, adding the Global Village insects here and there. They make a fun accent and kids love finding them in the completed mosaic." 

 

"Additionally, I added butterflies and dragonflies to one of two sidewalk inlays on each end of the street. These are on Maplewood Ave. in the Birchwood neighborhood of Bellingham." 

Jennifer added that the Global Village pieces are hard to see at this scale, but they are visible if you look close! Can you spot them?
