Mosaics inspired by Alfred Wallis

Hello blogger friends,

As the development of my mosaics carries on apace, I thought I would share with you my latest mosaics bound for the Jane Reeves Gallery in Padstow Cornwall, UK -

My sister introduced me to the work of Alfred Wallis, and I love it! His naive style and movement lends itself perfectly to my mosaic process.  I have made a set of three large mosaics for the gallery, and had them especially framed.  And here they are!

I would love to know what you think of them, and which is your favourite, and why.

Many thanks,
Felicity x

Mosaics in bespoke frames available!

Hello blogger friends,

Just a quick post to let you know these two framed mosaics are available to buy in my 'mosaics-ready-to-post' shop -

They won't be in there long, I'm afraid,  so do take a look before the galleries nab them!

I would love to hear what you think of their new bespoke frames!

Moving my mosaics on ...

Hello , Blogger friends!

It's a beautiful day here in Bristol, UK today - our back door is open and the dog is snoozing in the sun!

As a small business, it is sometimes quite hard to keep the momentum going and not getting in a rut, so I am always on the look out for new ideas and projects.  Mosaics are so versatile that there are many avenues open to me.

My latest step forward is this.  A friend suggested that I have my mosaics, especially the larger ones framed.  Perhaps in the past, I wouldn't have had the confidence to consider this, but now I feel my pieces are ready for it, and it feels like a very exciting and important step forward.

I have always tried to see my mosaics as works of art - I paint with tiles - so to have them framed feels like paying them due respect.  My work is rapidly developing and it feels the right thing to do.  I'm not sure about framing all of mosaics, or where this will lead, but it feels like one of those important moments.

Here is the first one framed for the Jane Reeves Gallery , and I think it sets it off quite nicely!  What do you think?

Until the next time ...
