I have created a unique way of making mosaics that encompasses my training and love for both painting and sculpture. I begin each commission in my sketchbook and, when designing a mosaic, consider the cuts of each piece right from the initial stages of the design. Each tiny piece of the mosaic is cut by hand from wet, rolled out clay. I then paint with specially mixed ceramic slips and the pieces are glazed and fired, up to three times. Eighteen carat gold lustre is used in selected areas of the mosaic. The process is an intense but fascinating one and creates mosaics that have both an intimate and jewel-like quality.
