Mosaic spring colour

It's a bit grim outside here in Bristol today  - squally, cold, wet, muddy and dark at 4pm!  So, I thought I would share a bit of spring colour!

As you can see, I love sunflowers!  Always uplifting and cheering, and surprisingly easy to grow!


When I'm in tile shops - of all shapes and sizes - I am always on the look out for different shades and textures of tile - so that my mosaics really come to life with a 3D effect - hard to see in photos but lovely to feel and see in real life!

I have been particularly lucky with yellows. oranges, reds, golds etc for my ever growing collection of sunflower mosaics - different sizes to accommodate all tastes and budgets.

Nothing like a bit of spring colour all year round!

My sunbowl was inspired by a trip to Barcelona, and witnessing the eccentricity of Gaudi first hand.
This sunflower, I guess, is my best seller - I never tire from making it, as each one is different, using all the tiles I've collected in a unique way.


This garden mosaic was commissioned by a keen gardener for her 50th birthday - "Flowers all year round", she says!

  1. It's my first look of garden mosaic. I'm never seen it before. Though Garden has enhanced the beauty of nature, this spring tile will enhance some extra I think.
