Maria Starling

Maria Starling Mosaics specialises in the design, manufacture and installation of high quality mosaics for interior and exterior decoration,  bringing this skilled art form to your home . Working from her London studio Maria will make your beautiful and original mosaic which can be fixed permanently to a floor or wall as a stylish focal point or fixed to a panel becoming a moveable piece of art. Maria also designs and makes mirrors and tables which will make a stunning feature to any room or a unique gift for that someone special.
My mosaic panels are a modern interpretation of this ancient art form to produce an individual and contemporary feel. I am continually drawn to pattern, texture and colour and experiment in their numerous combinations, resulting, hopefully in harmonious and decorative work. I find inspiration in a variety of places, from Islamic art and its myriad of intricate designs to fashion and the dazzling effects of a colourful Missoni print, but mostly I am captivated by glass itself and its ability to adorn most surfaces with its light reflecting nature adding vibrancy, depth and character to each piece of work.

I mainly work to commission and enjoy the challenge of  designing a mosaic that you will be happy to live with for ever..

"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 57 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.
