This beautiful hand made mosaic is a unique piece of mosaic that I have created out of my passion for portraiture and at least 6 years of painting and drawing people from live sitting sessions at my local drawing group. A.k.a. my extended family.
I was trained in both fine and digital art and have produced over 200 portrait studies ( generally from life) and all this contributed to my development as mosaic artist. I often think of mosaics as paintings and I am trying to combine my training as a ceramist, fine artist, and animator in my work. Through mosaics I have found a medium just as time-consuming as animation itself and in the stillness I am trying to find movement, in the coldness of the tesserae I try and add the warmth of the soul through the eyes of the sitter."
Made out of vitreous tiles, hand-cut, fitted & glued individually on a plywood base this mosaic who's time scale stretched over two months from start to finish is one of the first examples that I ever produced. It is a unique piece of hand made art and a true sign of patience and talent.
The mosaic is ungrouted, however, a thin layer of Epoxy resin is sealing the surface of the mosaic. This piece is not framed, however, it is fitted with elegant side hooks and wire, ready to go on display. You can frame it or embed it into more Epoxy and turned into something truly unique.
Get in touch if you have any questions, I am more then happy to answer them all.
