This was a big project that took me many weeks. After deciding on the design (abstract but reminiscent of stained glass windows and the colours of the sea) I first put the mosaic together on mesh – on my kitchen table!
Then I cut the mesh into manageable pieces for ease of handling.
When a nice dry day finally arrived in March, I installed the mosaic using mortar cement; this was hard physical work over 4.5 hours – phew! I added tiles to the wall top freestyle.
A week later I spent another 4.5 hours grouting and cleaning….equally hard work! My clients are very happy!

Wouldn’t it be great to have a revival of mosaics?!
Archaeologists uncovered a beautiful wall mosaic at an ancient synagogue in Huqoq, Galilee. It’s unusual as it depicts a non-biblical scene (elephants).
Had fun today experimenting with colour! New acrylic paint, glass paint, red ink stamps, pencil, charcoal, pastel and inktense blocks….
