Emma Cavell

Having previously worked with sculptural ceramics, mosaics appealed to me for that slightly 3 dimensional, immediate colour experience. I’m inspired by nature, emotion and an evolving awareness into a deeper sense of spirituality. Exploring the interplay of subtle hues and powerful contrasts I connect with the energy of colour and free-form design.  Hoping to express a powerful healing element within my work.

The materials I use allow large areas of colour & movement that I feel takes mosaic into another dimension. The surface of my work undulates due to the many varying shapes of the materials creating a real sense of depth. My exploration of mosaic art has encouraged me to play with a medley of wonderful materials. My most passionate discoveries being recycled & antique china, stained glass and a myriad of beaded jewels.  With their abundant, pleasing tones and interesting textures the materials communicate pockets of delight!

Making mosaics is a rewarding process that requires much time and patience.  Every fragment is individually hand cut and carefully shaped to fit exactly to the next.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 7 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
