2016-183 – Art Glass Planet Mandala

"Planet" by David Chidgey
“Planet” by David Chidgey 10″ – diameter

New Week::New Theme: Glass

Art glass mosaic artist, David Chidgey, of Art Glass Mosaic, created this beautiful mandala made of hundreds of pieces of art glass. I love how he created concentric circles of colors with thin spiraling lines of colors leading to the blue asymmetrical center.

About his art from his web site:

Beauty is not necessarily about something being perfect or whole… Perhaps this is why he is so drawn to the medium of mosaic. He takes individual fragments, imperfect and broken, and combines them in such a way as to reveal a rich tapestry for the senses. David invites us to explore the dance between light and shadow, shape and texture, brilliant color and muted tones, spontaneity and balance through the language of mosaic.

You can view more of his exquisite art glass pieces via his online gallery.

Inspiration For Today

David’s approach to creating his beautiful mandalas, using fragmented, imperfect, and broken pieces of art glass, reminds us to let go of perfection and instead strive for excellence in all things.

Happy Coloring!
