Short little film on making the Indian #mosaic mural

With the wall in Goa completing two years it’s only apt to show a little bit how it was put together. I hope you find it useful.

Fresh Air for Fresh minds equals Fresh insights!

“The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery. ~ Mark van Doren

There is nothing prouder than to see you mentioned in the context of a teacher and I was indeed pleased to see my name mentioned by Judy Francis at Fresh Air 2013 in Quenington

Judy Francis Based in Gloucestershire, Judy’s mosaics are inspired by Gaudi’s flamboyant buildings in Barcelona and Tiffany’s stained glass collection. She taught art at Hatherop Primary School for many years before studying with local mosaic artists, Erica Bibbings and Anya Burzec. Her work is now eagerly sought for its colourful and vibrant evocations of bird-life and her more abstract panels.

Her lovely rooster and dragon fly are lovely pieces and I can only gasp in awe as I saw them at this wonderful exhibition.

The biennial sculpture exhibition held at five acre grounds of Lucy Abel Smith provides a unique opportunity to see a creative mixture of traditionally modern and cutting-edge contemporary work in a stunning outdoor setting. I was truly delighted to see lovely pieces tucked all around the grounds and these pictures may not do justice to the beauty of the pieces on display. With July 7th the last day a glance at the catalog might inspire you to indulge! http://www.freshair2013.com/catalogue.html

More recently another creative workshop participant Lisa Brind was kind enough to introduce me to Horsely School near Stroud. This project will be the conversation for another day detailing the joy and happiness working with the school’s lovely children, teachers and parents!

As I look back at all these pictures I’m inspired to work with new participants at my next creative workshop on the 3rd of August 2013 in Poole Keynes. If you are on a social platform add me on Facebook or Google+ and you can book the event directly from the event calendars!

Have a wonderful weekend everybody and if you can please check out Fresh Air 2013 before July 7th!  It is indeed a refreshing sight!

Now with the workshop announcement over its time for the fun stuff that I have been meaning to put together for a while but too many things got in the way! My visit to the Contemporary Art Fair on the 8th of July was truly special! This year it was crammed with desirable fashion accessories and functional and decorative objects for your home and superb mosaics! But most importantly it gave me an opportunity to connect with Cleo Mussi my favourite and the established Mosaic Artist you know again.

As  Cleo Mussi once said and laughed, ‘I’ve no idea how to describe what I do.’  ‘It’s difficult… if I say I make mosaic, people have images of all sorts of hideous things, but if I say I deconstruct and reconstruct ceramics, that’s a bit pompous. I usually end up just showing people my work.’ Cleo is a joy to be with, very humble and kind and a true inspiration for anybody in this profession. Cleo thanks for inspiring me to do what I do!  I can proudly say that you are partly to blame for me making and teaching mosaics!

This special day would not have been possible without Angela Ibbs another excellent mosaic artist sending me the tickets. Excellent visit as you will see from the sunshine and what more required to enjoy a superb day in the Bovey Tracey. It is a small pretty and quaint market town, built of cob and granite and known as ‘The Gateway to Dartmoor’. It is also home to the Devon Guild which is a great place to visit and has some more Cleo Mussi exhibits!

The day dusked but not without my good fortune of falling in love with King Kong. The beautiful festival and the sweet town of Bovey Tracey is well worth a great visit next year or any other opportunity!

Till then for me its back to mosaics and the happy little treats that life proposes. Have a great day! Ciao my lovely blog followers!
