New workshop, new work

Here's a new piece - my obsession with sun and moon continues! This is a small, ungrouted mosaic, 20cm x 14 cm, made of vitreous and ceramic tiles, stained glass, iridized tiles and beads and it is for sale.

I actually spent my first full day (well, 11am to 5pm!) in the new studio yesterday and it was a very calming, serene experience. I love that I can reach things really easily now, rather than having to clamber over and remove lots of things to get to the material I am reaching for. I cannot tell you how much difference it has made to have white walls - the reflection of light us amazing and more so because one whole side of the room has windows. I feel very blessed to have this wonderful space and am looking forward to resuming the mosaic workshops.

Being in the studio, especially in the evening, has introduced me to a whole strata of wildlife activity that I never knew existed in my back garden. The amount of traffic on the roof is quite astounding - I think we are a local freeway! I am learning to tell the difference between the thud of the foxes, the scuttle of the squirrels and the sauntering of the neighbourhood cats. I think some of them are getting used to me too now, as they sit on the fence and look in at me. The odd fox and cat has also come in and had a look around (maybe they are interested in joining a mosaic class!)



  • How fun, so glad you have a space you can thrive in. We had a red fox in our back yard about a month ago, didn't stay long though. Other than that one instance and the occasional few birds, we don't have much wildlife around here, not that we can see anyway.

  • How exciting! It's just lovely having time to work away at one's creative endeavours isn't it?

    I had a shed put at the end of the garden with the premise I would work in there, unforutunately it has become storage space! One day! I do see the foxes and cats making good use of it though!

    Lovely work. Glad you're in with the local project!
