Lavando Trapos”, 2021, 6″ x 6″, stained glass, stringers, mirrors, wire, foam
While working on this mosaic art piece, I am transported to a young age, watching my grandmother “COCO” known as such for her wonderful qualities and love for her grandchildren. COCO did many things that are so different today which some we don’t see anymore. Washing clothes within a large metal pail, on a washboard with a large rectangle blue soap and harsh brush. Immediately thereafter, she would hang all clean clothes under the sun for drying. Once they were dry, the process concluded with lots of starch for proper ironing. Great memories and never forgotten.
