Tiki Mosaics by Velvet Glass

Maiden Offering, by Velvet Glass

Mark Bloom and Maggie Rickard of Velvet Glass create the most lovely scenes of tikis, wahines and other midcentury-pop inspired tropical scenes, all rendered in mosaics of glass tile. The Tuscon-based couple have been creating these mosaics for some time now, but they have not been offered for sale on their website — until now. There are a dozen or so mosaics available, including Maiden Offering, pictured at left (the maiden is likely inspired by a menu from Zombie Village in Oakland, and is one of my very favorite pieces of Poly-Pop imagery). These are exquisite pieces of art, and are priced accordingly — if there isn’t room in your budget for one, they also are offering reproductions of the originals as prints, cards and coasters.
