Winters Hill - 122cm x 54cm
Made from spalti, glass and slate.
Tipsie Daisies - 20cm x 20cm
These pieces were made for a British Association of Modern Mosaic (BAMM) exhibition of mosaics constructed from recycled materials entitled "Say it with Flowers". Made from gin and sherry bottles, I have intentionally not hidden the origin of the glass by including a bottle lid and the embossed branding on the glass.
Consumerism Void 2 - 80cm x 110cm
It amazes me how people have turned shopping into a hobby, spending hours every week traipsing around shops or surfing the internet, drooling over designer brands with astronomic prices. Do these goods really fulfil all they promise to the eager purchaser?
This is the second of three mosaics inspired by shoppers and the designer goods they aspire to.
Based on the geometric logo of a top designer brand and are made from vitreous glass tiles cut into 10m squares. The materials of the main surface were chosen to achieve a decadent and opulent finish. At the bottom of the mosaic the surface breaks away to reveal the “void” - a second more primal mosaic made from slate, porcelain and glass .

Consumerism Void - 95cm x 85cm
This is the first of three mosaics inspired by shoppers and the designer goods they aspire to.
The stripes are a loose interpretation of a reoccurring theme used by a top designer brand and are made from vitreous glass tiles cut into 6mm squares. Because of the small pieces and the curved reverse of the tile, the light reflects wonderfully from this part of the mosaic. The “void” uses the angled edge of roofing slates and forms peaks and troughs above and below the surrounding surface, giving the “void” great depth. The slate has a wonderful velvety texture that contrasts well with the reflective glass surrounding it.
