"Taos Valley Sunset" Hanging Cross by Tupper Hawley
This handmademosaic cross by Tupper Hawley is a brilliant and festive edition to any room. The piece includes a hanging wire and is 16 inches long by 9 inches wide.
Tupper’s crosses combine the ancient Japanese ‘Raku’ method and modern mosaic. It was at her father’s side, that Tupper learned the metal montage technique invented by her parents (Bill and Sammy Heaton) in Taos. This ‘metal mosaic’ technique while complicated, is also what makes her work so unique and beautiful. Her metal and glass works of art draw inspiration from her love of the Taos landscape and her deep spirituality.
