A Mosaic Novice

I’ve now had 3 mosaic sessions with Michelle Greenwood-Brown, an amazingly accomplished mosaic artist from Teignmouth. It’s so interesting to try a new technique and I’m loving being lost in the moment of the creative process.

As a complete beginner, everything is new: learning how to nip the china (it doesn’t ever cut as you expect!), nibble the shapes, mix the cement and apply the grout. There’s a lot more to the process than I had imagined – respect to all mosaic artists out there!

As a learning tool, I’m just making a pattern on a tile. I now realize that the idea in my head for a garden sculpture may be a little ambitious at the moment!
