MOSAICS: PIECES OF A PUZZLE
8th and 9th October: BAMM FORUM AND WORKSHOPS
I am member of the British Association for Modern Mosaic. (BAMM) In fact, I am on the committee, which means that I help to organise the annual Forum. The speakers this year ranged from a mosaic fixer, 2 international mosaic makers, an archaeologist with an interest in Roman mosaics and a photographer who specialises in taking images of work. It is always such a pleasure to meet up with like minded people and to hear professionals at the top of their game discussing their work. Sunday was workshop day and I assisted Joanna Kessel RA in her workshop which was on experimental mosaic making. I really like Joanna’s minimalist approach to mosaic and how she uses materials in non traditional ways. She is really inspirational. Here are the pieces I made during the class.
