Mosaic art from the heart

You Catch My Tears and Keep Them in  a Bottle

Again she cries alone

Tears fall like diamonds

Into the nothingness

Her heart lost, unknown

She cannot see

The veil that surrounds her

Tears of others also bent over, sobbing

Connecting the broken-ones in their alone-ness

And the great Other…





 Nothing is lost or forgotten.

Work just finished, words just written…inspired by a song my friend Nina Astrom sang live 6 years ago (oh, and life…). Not much more to say except thank you for looking.  Concetta x

    Wow. Just wow. Love it. If it was my mosaic, there'd have to be a soup-bowl full of tears… Love how you did her hair… wish I could do the round edges so well. Kodos for this beautiful piece!

    wow. It is pure beauty. Thanks for sharing the finished piece with us. (and even better to see, since we got to see it in progress, and know how many bottles broke before you cut one that would work!) This piece seems like it is pretty special to you, and I can imagine why.
