International Mosaic Exhibition 2012
|Artist Statement - Cove
Found objects and combinations of colour and texture motivate me to create new work inspired by the natural landscape. I use handmade ceramic elements alongside other materials chosen for their surface quality, shape or hue such as wood, metal, slate and stone

|Artist Statement - Mackerel (Scomber Scombrus)
I chose the mackerel as it is a stunningly beautiful fish, designed for speed and distance with their streamlined torpedo profile. They live in shoals and roam the seas searching for food. Being tireless hunters, they feed on anything from ragworms to sprats, sand eels, and plankton, from deep on the seabed to the surface.

|Artist Statement - Love's Labour's Lost
My inspiration came while visiting a tourist railway station gift shop and found a stand full of Vintage and Art Deco postcards. In true Art Deco form, I choose bold colours while incorporating a reference to an up and coming event; Olympics 2012.
For the water and its effortless movement I used marbled glasses together with a striking yellow glass for the sand. For the static bodies of the drivers I used a mixture of plain and warm gold tiles.
The surround is a representation of the gold and silver medals Great Britain will win.
