Nathalie Vin

Two things form the basis of all my work: a reverence for, and a desire to represent the wonder of nature; and a wish to illustrate the essential 'now' - that ever-fleeting moment when eternity is glimpsed but never retained. The medium of mosaic is a continual challenge to an artist because of its inevitable  gravity and permanence. My aim is to find ways of defying this essence. I  perpetually try to innovate with techniques and materials to achieve this.  I may find a solution involving exquisite use of miniature tiles, each painstakingly  customised by hand to reveal a desired effect, or perhaps in the technique of application involving radical overlays, combinations or juxtapositions. 

Nature is a recurrent theme in my work: its dominance, its universality, its  omnipresence and particularly its awesome indifference to human concerns.

"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.
