Wall Pieces (click

The wall pieces
were developed in response to requests for smaller mosaics. I have
often been given broken treasures from clients commissioning new designs,
but mainly the smaller pieces are an opportunity to play with ideas
and influences. They can contain condensed memories and have allusions
to shrines, altars and niches.
I now have a huge collection of china. Searching for colour, pattern
and texture combinations is wonderful, as well as allowing the content
and story develop around the often bizarre, kitsch ornaments now no
longer so lovingly displayed in a home. The notion of ‘taste’
and personal choice is called into question. When does this develop
in an individual and why make the choices that we do?
