Metalwork Table Top

September 15, 2011

Glass and ceramic mosaic on the theme of its own legs, a close up of the bent metal work decorations. If you’ve got some nice old legs in a shed waiting for a nice top half let’s talk. Any kind of image is possible. This one is roughly 28 x 28 inches, or 74 x 74cm.

I do like a nice underwater world, this is a simple fish in a mix of ceramic and glass mosaic, 6 x 6 inches (16 x 16cm).

Feet Around The Beachfire

Here’s a commission I did for a great traveler. (It’s not a bent mosaic, it’s two photos stuck together.) I imagined him on a beach, perhaps the coast of Africa. The original title was ‘Plenty Of Feet Around The Fire’, which I liked as a aural pun, but I was vetoed, or feetoed, I suppose. I made it by gluing it face down (i.e. mirror image wise) onto brown paper and then transferring it pre-grouted to a cemented board. It’s big, about 5 x 5 feet, and made to hang outside in mostly ceramic mosaic tiles. Underneath, this was the drawing to show what I was aiming for. I think the mosaic is now in Canada with its owner, and I hope brings a flavour of adventure in a happy settled life.

Rocket Shed

Rocket Shed was the name of my comedy club, awww… those were the days [nostalgic sigh]. Anyway, where was I, yes, this mosaic was made using a little mirror for the rocket and the stars, and both glass and ceramic tiles. If you know a man or a woman who makes rockets in their shed (literally or metaphorically) then I could happily make this again. And they could check their face for grease before coming back into the house. It’s 19.5 inches square edge to edge. Here it is in the sunshine.
