Charles Rennie Mackintosh Mosaic

October 23, 2011


This is a set of five trivets that make up an run for the middle of a table, for a fan of Charles Rennie, a BIG fan actually. And who isn’t? Pretty much the last word in elegance and style in water colour and architecture, he is Scotland’s answer to Antonio Gaudi (I think) and if you haven’t heard of him, treat yourself. Anyway, I hope now I’ve invoked the subtlety and delicacy of CRM you won’t think my efforts too clunky, they are built to put the turkey and veg on the Christmas table after all, something I don’t think Charles had to consider.

For my Mum’s birthday present (big birthday) I made a mosaic table top inspired by an ebony and mother of pearl Chinese style sewing box, which has been in the family a long time. The mosaic is made from glass tiles and broken crockery and black 1980’s glassware, which proved absolutely fiendish to work with, but worth it in the end. The table came from a local bring and take recycling event – so, free, which is always good. The mosaic is about 14 x 16 inches. …BTW, I photographed it outside for the daylight, but it’s very much an indoor mosaic. The writing in the corner is hbba, Happy Birthday Barbara Anne and my initials.
