house 90A Pair of 6 x 6 trivets, in the form of Uppark House, for a 90th birthday present for a lady who very much likes her National Trust visits.

The clouds, you may have spotted, announce the birthday, and the seasons are reflected from winter to Autumn in the grounds of the house.

Birthday Roses

roses 80Dinner plate sized, this mosaic in cut glass is an image of a rose called Sweet Shirley, in dappled foliage/background  – it was commissioned for an 80th birthday as a wall plaque. Can you spot the 80? And can you guess what the Birthday Girl’s name was?

 

Lazy Daisy Trivet Set

Items for Sale

These were made for you if you have a penchant for the 60s/ 70’s vintage look. The tiles are rounded and iridescent, and I have arranged them in a square daisy pattern. The large is 12″ x 12″, the medium is 10″ x 10″, the small 6″ x 6″. They are a set, but not the same, using a different colour for the background in each. For the set, £75m Plus P&P (they do weigh a lot, postage will be lots probably, if you like them I’ll find out or we can think of another way to get them to you.)

Picnic Design Trivet Set

September 26, 2013

kaw

Items for Sale

When I say Items, I’d be a bit loath to let these go separately, so think of them as a set of trivets. I wouldn’t actually take them on a picnic; heavy.

They make use of rather restrained tiles but set in nice 50s inspired patterns. The colours are white, grey and teal, and black.

The Large one is 10″ x 10″ and the smaller three are 6″ x 6″ each.

There is a tiny scratch on one of the tiles on one of the small ones (not that you’d notice, I’m just being mega honest) so although I’d love to charge £100 for the set of four, I’m only going to charge £85 plus P&P. Bargain! Let me know if you’re interested.

The following looked like they belong on the same post, so here goes:

 
whitesquareAbove, inspired by groovy sixties space age type patterns, white yellow and mirror backed pink tiles, all hand cut and rounded. Nice if you have a pristine white kitchen maybe?  £30 , 6″ x 6″.

 

rasberrycrossAbove, iridescent fawn tiles with an iridescent raspberry coloured cross. £25 plus P&P.  6″ x 6″.

 

swedishAgain, if you have a stylish white kitchen you might like this one – it has smooth white tiles, bigger than I normally use but really nice in a minimal way, with a touch of  glass millefleur for colour in the centre. £25 plus P&P, 6″ x 6″. Let me know if you are interested in any of these.

For the chap who likes to cook – kitchen trivets in manly tiles – hope you agree! (Also for women with brown kitchens of course.)

mantriv2This one above is a whopping 12″ x 12″ and made of lots of iridescent tiles in different colours in a concentric pattern. I deal to keep by the hob for when you’re using lots of pans, or as a table trivet.  It’s £45, plus P&P, let me know if you’re interested. There is a shadow of my head taking the picture on the corner of this – apologies!

Below is another macho mosaic with glittery brown tiles and a bit of a teal pattern, a beefy 12″ x 12″, also £45 plus P&P, again let me know if you like the look of either of these.

Bobble Mosaics

silverbobble

These trivs are made from loverly commercial bathroom/kitchen tiles which are thick and very iridescent. I discovered if you scrape the original (boring) colour paint off the bottom of them they become clear, and then you can stick them over any colour mixed with glue, same with the glass bobbles. Both are 6″ x 6″.

They are £30 each, plus P&P – green bobble or silver/lilac bobble – if you’re interested let me know.

100th Birthday Present

September 3, 2013

G&P HR_Blackbg

Here’s a mosaic I made for my friends who have the most beautiful house in France. The name of the house is an old fashioned French word for ‘Forge’, which it used to be, but my friends are known for their love of food and entertaining and indeed their joint 100th (49 + 51) was a party party party, with many many fab friends and family joining them for a summer Friday to Monday of chateaus, pools, fine food, an open air Cat On A Hot Tin Roof screening, and generous hospitality. It was a truly wonderful weekend.

So, I’ve turned Forge into barbecue, bashing metal into bashing steak, and attempted to hint at the beautiful ‘Gers’ landscape and far Pyrenees surrounding them. I’ve written a really subtle message round the bottom to commemorate the weekend too. It’s a largish mosaic diameter 15″, on marine ply because it’s for the outside, and using a mixture of cut sheet glass and ceramic tiles. The white tiles wont take a sooty grout, so I’ve used a lighter colour, which gives a more subtle look.

harlquinbrightUpdate: the purple colourway has been sold – only the turquoise colourway is now for sale.

Continuing with my experiment to make nice trivets that I can make more quickly than the more bespoke ones, these are £30 each (plus P&P) and you’re welcome to one or both of them. They are 6″ x 6″, and the blue and red one is really that bright, it’s not the photo!
