Mosaics by Ariel in Needham
I met Ariel on Twitter and when I found out she lived next door in Needham, it seemed like we were fated to meet, especially after I popped over to her website and saw her amazing custom mosaics.
This piece is gorgeous. Can you imagine it larger as a kitchen backsplash? Funny you should ask, because she does that too!
When I told Ariel that this piece reminds me of Japanese brush painting and Gustuv Klimt, she said that Gustav was influenced by Asian art.
Her pieces are the epitome of form meeting function. While they are worthy of hanging on a wall as a museum piece, she also creates custom kitchen backsplashes, corporate logos, and mirrors.

She also does custom mirrors. This one would be amazing in an entry way. She makes all mirrors to order and can do different sizes, shapes, and colors as the client desires. The mirrors are popular as wedding gifts.
