This week’s MotD theme: Tis the Season for Peace
Contemporary mosaics, mixed media, and virtual arts artist, Cindy White of Earth Mother Mosaics is quite prolific when it comes to making mosaic peace symbols. I love how each of them have their own personality and energy; some subdued while others pop with color.
About the Peace Symbol she shares:
Did you know? – In 1958 the peace symbol was originally designed as a logo for the British nuclear disarmament movement and was created by artist and professional designer, Gerald Holtom. Now it is widely used and loved by many generations. Well done, Gerald, well done!
About herself she states:
I am a product of the 70’s. A true hippie at heart. Those that know me, know my design preferences involve suns, crescent moons, peace signs, sparkly stars and swirls or wavy lines of intense color used in an abstract way. Geometric shapes of stained glass and mirror are often used to create what I call scrap art. When using dish tiles or shards my style can be associated with folk art.
…my mosaics are often made using small scrap pieces of stained glass and recycled mirror. Pieces of broken dishes and mugs are used giving them new life.
Inspiration for Today
As with Cindy’s mosaic peace symbols, peace comes in many sizes, shapes, and colors. A wonderful variation on the sanskrit word Namasté that seems apropos to today’s MotD:
The peace in me honors the peace in you.
