This piece consists of what looks like a strap for luggage. The balls came as one unit, and I have no idea what purpose it served for whatever it was a part of. My objective was to hang the balls from the strap and display the shiny golden metal parts in a balanced way. Clasping the mounting hardware together provided a bit of drama and carried the theme of the piece. The strap is terminated over a dowel and hung from a leather cord.
I have created all of the large mosaics on the Gulf Coast in Mississippi from Stennis Soace Center to Pascagoula. As a roster artist for Mississippi Arts Commission, I travelled the state creating mosaic installations in schools,churches and public facilities. I also work in paint and create jewelry.
