Set on a base of rustic painted wood, this mosaic features all the colours of the rainbow, in a spiral of different items. Pieces of Italian glass tile sit alongside vintage crockery, ceramic beads, metal washers and glass pebbles. The base board is pale grey and the mosaic is set in pure white grout, to make it stand out slightly from the background. A colourful, tactile piece that will compliment any colour scheme.

Title of piece: "Glass Spiral"

SIZE

19 x 19cm, If you prefer inches it is 7.5 × 7.5

Your mosaic will come carefully wrapped then boxed to protect it in transit, with a little leaflet of care and hanging tips.

HOW IS IT MADE?

Working on a base of (usually) ply wood, or sometimes MDF, a hanging hook is screwed onto the reverse. A design is drawn by hand in pencil, then mosaic pieces are applied individually with a combined adhesive/grout mix in white, cream or colour depending on the design. Many materials are used and these may include tesserae (tiny tiles), glass, mirror, ceramic, reclaimed or vintage crockery, shell, metal or beach finds. After drying the piece is grouted then cleaned. Due to the uneven nature of the pieces used, grouting may be repeated several times until all air pockets are gone and there is a smooth finish. After the grout is satisfactory a scalpal blade is used to clean up any rough areas, the tiles are polished and the edge of the piece is sanded smooth. Finally the edges of the piece are painted to match the grout and give a neat finish when seen side on.

SAFETY

The sides are carefully finished to minimize sharp edges as far as possible, but broken crockery can be sharp so care should be taken when dusting. Please note they are heavy, and therefore not suitable for small children to handle. If hung in a childs room they should be out of reach so there is no possibility of the piece falling on anyone. These mosaics can also freestand on a shelf, and a product like white tack should be applied to the bottom edge to prevent slipping.
