Plaice on the Sand

Plaice on the Sand

Description: This is one of my early mosaics showing a Plaice on the sea bed. The texture of mosaic tiles, particularly the speckled brown tiles, lend themselves perfectly to fish. The plaice is set against a backdrop of the swirly sand which replicates their natural environment on the sea floor
I have a number of other fish mosaics in progress including a John Dory and mackerel. The challenge is trying to make the fish in themselves interesting beyond their natural colour and shape
Year of creation: 2005
Materials: Mosaic on mdf base
Size excluding frame: 66cm x 40cm
Size including frame : n/a

  2. I want my bathroom tiles to have this kind of art. It looks perfect to be displayed either in a kitchen or a bathroom.
