Grape artwork commission

Just finishing up this special order (commission) of a mosaic of a bunch of grapes. It contains about 525 tesserae (cut pieces). It is paper-based but I create a multi-layer, raised surface with heavy gloss to make it look like ceramic. It is easily dusted with a damp cloth. I have yet to frame and gloss it. This is a special order by a repeat client in Ottawa, Ontario!

The finished piece before framing/glossing.
An image to show the stage where I cut each tesserae.
This photo was taken at dusk so it’s dark/grainy but at least it shows scale.
The piece is about 13″x17″.
