  Selected Makers

Sarah Stanley

I create original contemporary mosaics - each work is completely unique; hand-made using traditional techniques and materials as diverse as vitreous glass, porcelain, ceramic, mirror, stone and marble.

My mosaic pieces are predominantly abstract and with a very limited colour palette, using shade, tone, hue, texture, cutting and laying to create depth and interest and to emphasize the unique qualities of each material.

I have been making mosaic pieces for nearly 20 years and I am completely inspired by the huge potential of the materials, their colours and textures and the vagaries of hand-cutting that means that every single piece will be completely different – a marriage of the head, the heart, the hands and the materials.

Based full-time in my riverside studio in Brentford, west London, I work extensively to commission and exhibit regularly in London and the South East. I also teach adult classes and weekend workshops.

I am a professional member of the British Association for Modern Mosaic (BAMM) and a founder member of Johnsons Island Artists. I am also Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees for Southbank Mosaics CIC (based in Waterloo in central London) and the London School of Mosaic.

"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 37 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.
