One of the happiest things I know on this earth is a good mosaic. Note to self…must find more time to make mosaics!
Today I happened upon this artist from Brighton, England, and just had to share. Anna Tilson has been working with her mosaic arts since 1999, and she’s creating some absolutely wonderful pieces with vintage crockery. This beauty is available at her notonthehighstreet.com store.
I’m drawn to this next piece because Anna used the stamps from the back of vintage crockery – and it’s the history behind a piece like this which really draws me in. Think of all the people who’s lives have somehow touched this piece. Was it the butler at the Queen’s palace? Or the Smithers family down the row who’s dog waits patiently for dinner scraps to come his way. The stories, the lives. Amazing, really.
