Brick as art! I love it. Every material has potential to be shaped by creative forces... and everything is a canvas, isn't it??

I have to admit, when I read "bricks", my reaction was one of low expectation. But wow, this was fascinating! Amazing what creative people can do, regardless of the medium. I was especially impressed with the beauty of the Watts Chapel. Stunning!

Wow, on the Mara Smith one.

Hi, Tabatha. Your bricks reminded me of a poem by Heidi Mordhorst, narrated by bricks. I'll have to ask Heidi, but I believe they were the bricks that made up Humpty Dumpty's wall. I love that cool art from Indianapolis!

Gorgeous works of art! Wouldn't have thought of brick pieces as mosaic chips, but there you are.

The 3-D piece by Mara Smith is amazing.
