As probably mentioned before, I have been known to start new projects before I’ve finished others! This Buddha head was something I started a couple of years ago, I made a start …… and then put it to one side to do something else.
I decided against mosaicing the face because I was afraid it would detract from the features and I like the contrast too.
It’s been some time since I’ve been in my workshop but as my job in the ceramics studio has come to an end I’m looking forward to spending lots more time in my garden hideaway, creating more of my own art.
I went out for a pizza with my workmates this week and took along a personalized mosaic for each of them.
Agapantus (African Lily) for Jane, a flower-lover.
A robin for Sophia because a little robin often visits her garden.
And a stag beetle for Kellie because we had a funny conversation about the stag beetles in my garden flying past my neighbour and making her scream! Hilarious!
The ceramicist I worked with has now settled into her own studio and is busy making lots of beautiful things. And, as every studio should have a name plaque, I made this for Gina.
It was lovely getting back to designing and making mosaics and I’m really looking forward to getting started on my next project
