Here's the blurb about her in the FW Weekly...."Outsider Artist Critic’s choice: Tina McIntire The mosaic art that McIntire makes from antique cut glass is colorful, light-bending magic. Hang one of her mosaics in your window, and you’ll have some major-league eye candy for years to come. Her works are so eye-catching that one of her mosaics is featured on the glossy posters created as advertising for the 6th Annual Jazz by the Boulevard music and arts festival. As of this writing, that same mosaic was among a half dozen of her works on sale at Uncommon Angles at Montgomery Plaza, a local dealer of McIntire’s work."
I watched her on the Crafters Coast to Coast episode (was on in 2005) & she uses vintage wavy glass, old window frames & sometime glass beads & "stuff". I have this window hanging in the little opening of my stairwell...it looks down over the stairs. Sorry about the lighting but the stair light just shone right into the camera so I had to do w/out it.
It's sooo much prettier in person...wish I could get a better pic of it.
Doesn't she do beautiful work? Here is the HGTV episode she was on. You can see more of her work on her myspace page . And read an article about her in the Dallas Morning News. I am very proud that I own a piece of her artwork, created just for me.
Her sister did another piece for hubby of his motorcycle. It's beautiful but I still made him hang it @ the shop. ;o)
