New workshops for Oct., Nov., Dec. ’18

Hey everyone,

It would be nice to make mosaics with you some time, once again if you’ve already attended one or more of my workshops, and due to popular demand I’m just launching a whole bunch of workshops from my home in the coming months:



    • “Making mosaic pendants”, with Sitara Morgenster.3-HOUR WORKSHOP making your own mosaic pendant(s). We will be creating one or more mosaic pendant(s), at once learning how to cut, design, adhere and finish mosaic tesserae to a zinc-alloy jewellery base, while adding a unique fashion statement to our collection of accessories! Also brilliant as special gifts or X-mas present. Small groups of 6 max. so make sure to book early. Check out dates and details here: https://www.eventbrite.co.nz/e/making-mosaic-pendants-summernight-workshops-in-peria-tickets-51097891168

Video-blog of work-in-progress

Update: picture gallery after finishing the second attempt to “By the pool”, as the first version shown as WIP below was way to heavy to transport!

On my Mosaics.Gallery blog this month a mosaic art-vlog instead of writing, taking you up-close and personal to a commission I’m working on: “By the Pool” (destined for a poolside in Auckland, New Zealand), showing off this work-in-progress in (so far) two super short films. The first video shows base and pillar still relatively naked. You can see the plant pots (plastic and terracotta) and plumbers pipe forming the skeleton of this mosaic garden sculpture. In part two, the base is covered (later to be grouted) and the leaves and tulips applied to the pillar-part of the installation. A sphere will be topping off this creation (the original sketch on which the design was based is the thumbnail of the first video). I will post detailed info about how the structure was built after completion of the piece. The glue I’m using is roof-and-gutter silicon.
