Key Mosaics

My First Mosaic

My First Mosaic

I recently published my Mosaic CV so thought it would be a good idea to show my key mosaic pieces.

This is the first piece I made with Julia, a small coaster. No cutting involved but it still took me all afternoon!

Animal-ZebraThis  ‘Herd of Zebra’ was made from the template I got from the mosaic shop in Bath. It’s the mosaic that got me hooked on this art form. I am still impressed that I was able to make such a complex early piece.

 

Once I started going to Kitty’s weekly workshop, with her help and guidance, my work really started to develop and I tried lots of new styles and different ideas.

This was the first time I tried to interpret a photo into a mosaic. It was also my first mosaic showing a real life picture. I still find it hard to interpret scenes into mosaics but I think I am getting there.

Why not make yet another, even bigger mosaic to raffle?? Souldn't take too long!

Hollyhocks

 

‘Hollyhocks’ was my first mosaic using large bathroom tiles. I usually use small mosaic tiles so it was a totally different technique which produced a different style of mosaic. It was raffled for £1 per ticket and raised  £1,250 for the Log Cabin children’s charity.

I think my our work here is done. Thank you LOG CABIN for a great opportunity and fantastic experience.

Trees at the Log Cabin

 

 

 

I worked on a voluntary project  with the Log Cabin producing 11 large, outdoor mosaics.  As well as butterflies, dragonflies and a smily sunshine face, I decided it would be great to finish with a spring and an autumn tree. I had never made anything on this scale before and this is still one of my favourite pictures.  I am really proud of the work I did with them and pleased with the mosaics that I made for them.

Marple Mosaic for clients Hilary and Pauline

The Marple Mosaic‘ is my largest commission to data .  This was a big challenge for me as I don’t usually do ‘geometric’ pieces.  However, I really enjoyed the discipline of working with the sharp angles and defined spaces.  I am delighted with the finished piece, as are my clients Hillary and Pauline.

These are not ‘key’ as such, but I like them.

REQUEST: Which is your favourite and why?

COMING SOON: A date for your diary.
