I’ve been making these sweet little mosaic birds since around 2005.  They have evolved over time and no longer have pipe cleaner feet…after all, when you’re flying it’s more aerodynamic to have your feet tucked against your body, right?  I’ve recently started making the wings out of brass, copper or aluminum that I stamp with a special phrase and some are also adorned with a metal crown.  Very soon they will be available for purchase in my new Etsy Shop.  Stay tuned!

Here are some new mosaic pieces that will be for sale at City Market this coming Sunday, June 14 from 10-5 in Armory Square, Syracuse.

Viva Sweet Love screen printed goods will be available as well.  As many of you know, I’ve been recovering from two hip replacement surgeries…doing awesome, however, no new VSL designs yet…but tons of seconds and slightly imperfects and lots on sale for the Viva Sweet Love goodies. Central New York folks: Please come out if you can- it would be so lovely to see you…seriously, I’m not kidding!!

For those of you living outside CNY, I don’t have an online shop yet for my mosaic pieces.  However,  if anyone is interested in purchasing a mosaic piece, please email me at fancher.amy@gmail.com and we can discuss the details.

Thank you!

I made this Wedding Cake for a solo 10th anniversary show I had in Syracuse, NY. The germination period took about 5 years and involved various experiments with different types of materials for the base form of the cake.  Plaster of Paris was one of the materials experimented with, however it proved to be much too heavy! Good ole’ foil wrapped foam insulation ended up being the material of choice which was carved into round cake-like layers w/ a serrated knife and glued together.

As a side note- in the first photograph of the cake (w/ dark background) I had to remove one of the layers because the cake was too tall for the back drop paper.

Materials: Particle board, foam insulation, styrofoam, stained glass, mirrored stained glass, porcelain flowers, vintage cake topper, caulk, acrylic paint, construction adhesive, tile grout

Dimensions: 40″H x 18″W

Date Completed: March 2003
