"I've been doing mosaic for about 5 years, using mainly broken dishes – ceramic or porcelain. I love the endless variety of colors and patterns, and the sometimes unexpected shapes they break into. I create 3D as well as flat art, and enjoy giving new life to broken items. In this work I investigated the creation of rhythm and movement in mosaic.
'There's always the sun' (the Stranglers) was playing in the background when I first thought of this work. It is intended as an optimistic message."
