Wood Pigeon Bathing

65cm x 54cm

11mm thick

Vitreous glass tile, iridescent glass  tile, matt porcelain tile and mirror, mounted on 6mm tile backer board



A variety of types of tile have been used in this picture.  The water is iridescent glass.  The pigeon is in matt porcelain tiles with an iridescent glass patch on the neck mimicking the green iridescent feathers of wood pigeons.  The splashes are mirror and the background is vitreous glass.

In these photographs the light can be seen catching some of the mirror fragments but the full effect of the iridescent glass and sparkling mirror comes from the movement of the viewer.
