Tulips, Mosaic tabletop

£ 750.00

This mosaic table top has been created entirely using my own glazed ceramic tiles. One fired these tiles are smashed up and rearranged into the design on a painted wood frame. This wood frame then sits neatly over a metal and wood bistro table, I can supply the metal and wood bistro table  (an additional £25.00), or you may already have one.   The grouting used for the mosaic is a waterproof one so this table can be used outside. 

The inspiration for this table design came from my favourite flowers-  Tulips.  They come up in the garden every spring to remind me that the winter is behind me and summer is ahead! The pale turquoise background of this artwork has a crackle effect giving it a feeling of old frescoes and tiled walls of long ago.  For this piece I simply laid down my tulips on the table and painted them as I saw them,  straight onto the tiles with my coloured glazes.  When the tiles came out of the kiln I bravely smashed them up and rearranged the pieces within the frame for the tabletop to abstract the image and give a fragmented look like you see in museums when the pots have been reassembled, rather than leaving the straight lines of the original tiles   A lovely Tulip tabletop to enjoy all year round and especially to enjoy outside for the first warm day of the year with a glass of wine,  to celebrate spring of course! 

This mosaic can easily be used for wall art, with hanging attachments which I can provide. This can then be hung in a sunny place with no fear of colours fading like usual painted artworks.
