Friday July 13th - Chris Deacon - Mosaics demonstration and talk
Chris is a self-taught mosaicist and spends part of her week mosaicking panels, slates, pots, terra cotta saucers. In terms of materials she works mainly with ceramic or vitreous tiles with smalti and marble used to add depth and texture to pieces.
Inspiration for mosaics sometimes comes from travel to sites of ancient cultures such as the Incas of Peru, Navaho Indians of USA, and Mayans of Guatemala as well as present day cultures such as Maoris of New Zealand. Often however ideas come closer to home in the garden or from walks on the estuary shoreline.
Chris has always been interested in geology and fossils also provide interesting design shapes.
