Creating a bespoke mosaic doorstep for a London house.

Hello mosaic friends,

I have been working hard on creating a bespoke mosaic doorstep, which I have now finished and delivered - approx 1m x 1m, 1800 individually cut pieces, 5 weeks of works and two sore hands!  Below is the story of how it all developed - 




I started with design options for my client to consider.  She had already sent me a template of the exact size of the doorstep.


I then drew the design on the cement board backing.

Then began the snipping - each piece had cut by me, and straight lines in porcelain tiles are about the hardest to do!

The edge is complete in a chess board design, accommodating the bespoke size.


Luckily the number worked from both sides!  I used a semi circular template to create the scallop design.



 And so, after many hours of snipping, here is the finished doorstep!  I am delighted with the final mosaic, and look forward to seeing photos of it when it is installed.  

Onto my next commission ... 

Thanks for all your support,

Felicity
