My client wanted something special and unique as a focal feature in her island home on Armona, Portugal.
Working to complement the grey tones of the room and create something soothing, I was inspired by the stunning sky and seascapes of the island and by a unique oval of antique mirrored pink glass I had been lucky enough to pick up.
The mosaic, which was over 2 metres wide, was made off-site in my studio, then shipped to the Algarve, where I was reunited with it for installation and to add the finishing touches direct from the local beach.
As an added, (slightly random!) request, my client asked for a black cat to peak from her kitchen to keep watch and to remind her of her beloved cat back in the UK. ‘Derek the cat’ settled in immediately!
