It's been all about mosaic flowers in my studio this week. I am deep into a commission for the Jane Reeves Gallery - https://www.facebook.com/janereevesgallery.co.uk?fref=ts - which will be opening in Padstow, Cornwall in February.
I was asked to make eight big (30cm x 20cm) spring flower mosaics, some of which I had already designed and made, and some will be exclusive to the gallery - these four are finished!

Next week, I will be making three completely new ones, and a slightly different take on my sunflower mosaic, which I am very excited about. It's a challenge, and strangely tiring, but amazing to create something original. I worry about a lot of things, but I don't worry about the creative side of my work - I just seem to know what to do, which still feels incredible to me, and I am very grateful for it.
Also, I am running a mosaic flower workshop on 28th Feb 2015 here in my studio in Bristol. That's an amazing privilege too, as people delight in getting into that creative zone. They find themselves relaxing, forgetting, and creating something they never thought they could. Have a look at this short film below - I still have a few places left ...
