Mosaic making galore…

Life (and blogging) has been interrupted somewhat by our  kitchen-dining room (where we spend most our time) being out of use for two weeks, at one point with no floor!

Despite it all, here’s been a lot of making going on – have a peek…

mosaic signs for business

And the first of several mosaic signs for a local business that has lots of branches – one for each office being made. The letters are made of stained glass cut using a Taurus ring saw – see pics of it in use here. I am still at the ‘fiddling’ stage with this one and with another commission that I am doing – that stage when you get into the ‘zone’ by putting different materials next to each other and seeing how they look, cutting different size and shape pieces and playing with them. Such an essential step in the artistic process and not to be rushed don’t you think?

Finally the dust is settling on all the (rather unsettling) upheaval in the house and I am looking forward to more concentrated making time in my very cosy studio.

Tonight, I am off to the Wimbledon Arts Studio’s Show where several of my mosaics are on display at Go Create.

What are you creating or planning to create?

      Thanks Nicole, the gappy teeth are rather gorgeous, will miss them when the new ones grow back. Guess you can understand a thing or two about building work eh..?! xx

    I agree with Nicole, Isabella’s toothy gap is precious as is her butterfly & Toby’s Toucan. Love the Christmas ornaments, what base are you using? Hope your house is back in order for Christmas
