Mosaic Project

I am very excited about a new project that I am embarking on.  After Art Weeks I realised that the route for my guests to use took them down the side of our house and all they had to look at is the blank wall of the side of my studio. So, I am making a mosaic picture for this wall. It’s going to be huge – at least, it’s the largest piece I’ve made to date, 120cm x 160cm (4ft x 5ft 3ins). I decided that the picture would be an English country garden with lots of colour. I bought the backing board today and drew out the outline. I am going to have to make it outside because the board is too heavy to move about so progress will depend on the weather. The finished piece will certainly be colourful, I just hope it looks like a garden full of flowers.

I’ll put a few pictures up when there is something to show.

On the subject of mosaic project I am holding a mosaic beginner’s workshop tomorrow. I’m really looking forward to passing on mosaic techniques so that others can enjoy the art too.

Hi My name is Jane and I live in North Oxfordshire, UK. I started making greetings cards and jewellery, progressed to working with stained glass, played with a microwave kiln for small fused glass items and then went all the way with a studio and kiln. I then explored lampworking and enjoy playing with hot glass too.. I have also been a knitter and crochet(ter?) since childhood. I enjoy playing with colour - the brighter the better in my opinion. I attend craft fairs each year in the local area as my glass is attractive face to face. I also run workshops in my garden studio and love to share my skills with others.
