Flower Blox (tulip-detail)

This is comprised of 16 blocks of pine wood that are 3.5" x 3.5" and adhered together in a 14" x 14" mosaic of xerox caulk photo transfers, I took the image one spring and manipulated it in photoshop to make the red pop nad the green deep. There are translucent areas in the caulk that show the wood - it's kind of hard to explain :)

But it has a really rich look to it, the caulk sounds like a weird medium, but it's so cool - there are imperfections due to the caulk and the handmade nature of the piece, but they add to the overall piece.

You can see more shots in my filthEdesign Etsy shop.
