Reading the Tea Leaves

Art Glass & Wood Wall Sculpture

Created by Aaron Laux
This artwork is a contemporary approach to mosaic made from glass, fractured stone fragments, and weathered pieces of wood the artist has salvaged, cut, and dried. Each piece of glass and wood has been hand fit and glued to a plywood substrate. Texture is provided by the natural surfaces of the trees that have been weathered and grayed by natural elements. Glass is chipped along the edges for further textural interest. Washes of acrylic color have been added to some areas of the mosaic.

This artwork is a narrative of our human connection to nature. Elemental motifs of fire, water, stone, and plants are woven together to illustrate the interconnectedness of life. "Reading the Tea Leaves" tells the story of how we see patterns in the world all around us and what that means to our lives.
