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.
