The goose is one of the few mosaics I’ve done that’s on a solid surface rather than on fabric.
A commissioned piece.
The home is on a lake shore where lots of geese congregate.

Okay, I’ve added the other 3 pieces that I’ve done on a solid surface.
All of them are examples of my very earliest mosaics, in fact the skinny horizontal one is the first.
It’s a headboard that I made for a king size bed.

The sunburst one is the first mosaic piece I ever sold.
I still have the maze. The tiles in the maze are only 15/32” and they’re all rounded over with a 1/16” bit.

Many different species. Wenge, purple heart, bloodwood etc.
The frame is walnut and figured maple.
The pieces are squares and rectangles graduating in size from 1/2”x1/2”, in 1/8” increments
up to. if I recall correctly, 1 1/2”x 2”.

Very nice! Why is it called an Australian Shepherd, a European Swallow, an African Elephant, but a Canada Goose?

Excellent work, and it brings back great memories of my grandparents’ place on a lake where the Canada geese were as thick as flies.

Wow!!! That is stunning. I’ve never seen a wooden mosaic. I love it. What was your technique? Did you lay it all out and then glue it down on the board?
