I am so excited about sharing my Mosaic Mandala with you!
Sometimes as an artist you get really jittery and excited inside about a piece you make - as if you have had too much coffee or something big is going to happen - I'd better warn you, I am in that state now - I've even forgotten to have lunch!
I was inspired to make a Mandala by Lucy at Attic 24 - www.attic24.typepad.com who is running a project making crochet Mandalas for Yarndale www.yarndale.co.uk- and she kindly said she would accept a mosaic one!
I love pattern and colour, and this just seemed perfect for me. So in between big commissions I went head first into Mandala madness, and I am now a woman obsessed. I loved using some different materials and getting that colour and texture combo just right - I was soooo happy making it!
Here are snapshots of the making progress - my heart is pounding as I see it unfold..
And then grouting, wiping, looking, squeals of delight, final wipe ... and ....
This Mandala is 20cm in diameter and approx 10ml depth - it can be hung on a wall or used on a table, or just looked at for an instant uplifting of the spirit.
I would LOVE to make some more, (my next is going to be sun themed), so if you would like a Mosaic Mandala of your very own, do get in touch and help/feed my addiction! firstname.lastname@example.org
Each one will be unique, but guidelines are always welcome to get me started. I'm too jittery to firm up a price yet, but it will probably in the region of £50 ono!
Thank you for bearing with me - please let me know if you feel the same about it ... or is it just me?!
