Dream Window

This is my most recent creation. I designed and created this entire window over the last week as I prepared for the Dustbowl Market that was held yesterday in downtown Norman. With the exception of the 30+ mph "wind sweeping down the plain" it was a great experience. Lots of good company, getting to see many friends, family and artists all in the accompaniment of great music. (It was in conjunction with the 3rd annual Norman Music Festival.)

This window is one of my favorite newer creations. I am not usually the butterfly type, but I truly love the multitude of patterns contained in this Cavallini paper. I have TONS of old plates, china, etc. I was able to retrieve some of my vintage aqua/green dishes to compliment the paper nicely. The tile coordinates very well with the butterflies. The word "DREAM" was created by cutting down glitter tile. Talk about cool. I love anything flashy and that definitely gave the window some extra pizazz. I guess a customer loved it too. I had just finished grouting it yesterday morning, and it sold during the show. I think the grout was still drying. I wish my art always flew off the shelf like that!


Okay, let me just say that I am anxious and excited all at the same time about starting my first official post on my blog. I have had a website for several years now, but this is the first time I can create and write down what is going through my wacky mind for all the world to see! I hope you will find it to be inspiring, enjoyable and humorous too!

My name is Amy Baldwin. As many of you already know, I have been a creative creature my entire life. For the last 6 years I have been diving deep into the world of fine arts and craft. I am a self-taught mosaic artist. My art has evolved since my initial debut. I am always challenging myself to create new techniques, designs and experiences through my art and the world around me.
