Do you kiss your work goodbye? London hospital mosaic has flown...

I finished my 'Circles' mosaic for the London Hospitals mosaic project - mosaic artists from all round the world producing a 20 x 20 cm mosaic on the theme of circles which will all be mounted together into a public art installation for a busy London hospital waiting area.

Can't wait to see the finished installation. Check out some of the entries here. The project is also being done to raise money for the Esther Benjamin Trust that rescues Nepalese children who are trafficked and trains them with work skills (including mosaic making). Find out more here.

In the meantime I had only a couple of days to enjoy my piece. When I send work away (most often never to be seen again) I must confess to giving it a little affectionate stroke and kiss. These are my little mosaic babies, flying into the world. Am I the only one that does this?



  • well done, looks amazing. Would love to see a pic of it in situ too :) I don't kiss my work goodbye, but I do love it when it goes off in to the world to be shared.

  • Thanks Amelia. I had a feeling that I was a bit strange in my kissing practices!! xx

  • It's gorgeous! Please tell me you will be going to visit this at the hospital to take some photos?!

    I don't think I have ever actually kissed my pieces goodbye, but i will admit to giving some loving caresses to the most challenging/involved/meaningful pieces i have sent off.

  • No you are not! Haha. But I must admit: if my works looked more like yours I would kiss them some more. Gorgeous stuff!!

  • Gorgeous, Concetta! And nice to hear that you'll have work in another exhibition! Looking forward to seeing photos of the big mosaic with all the circle pieces together. Wonderful idea, and so nice that people are giving their time in this way.

  • Hello beautiful Concetta, lovely to hear from you! I love this piece I can see why you found it hard to give it up. Altho I have to say, you must feel so chuffed, so many people will get to see it each day. Such a rewarding and giving piece.
    On another note, I have been meaning to do a 'celebrating each step' post, so much has happened this year. I just need another hour in this day, and I will manage it! xxx
