This hot and fiery mosaic wall art is unique – you will receive the item in the photographs. I really enjoyed making this piece. There is something so satisfying about lovely curvy flames and how they interlock. I wanted to catch the movement, heat and light of flames so I used flowing shapes and hot colours . The mirrored glass and iridescent tiles really catch the light and bring the fire to life!
I used stained glass, mirrored glass, traditionally made art glass tiles, iridescent vitreous tiles, recycled glass mini and micro tiles and translucent murrini in hot shades of reds, oranges and golden yellows.
It has a black glass tile frame and is finished in black grout for contrast and to suggest stained glass windows. It is mounted on black painted MDF with a hook for hanging securely.
Dimensions 22 cm x 21 cm x 1.5cm
Hello! My name is Carol Ahmed. I have had a lifelong love of mosaic and having recently given up work, I have been able to spend more time creating mosaics. I love designing – playing with pattern, colour and shape. I was always the kid ( and the grown up to be honest!) making patterns in the sand with pebbles and shells. . I like combining mosaic tiles with other materials – especially upcycled jewellery and beads, but also other ‘found’ materials: driftwood, stone etc. I search for interesting objects to upcycle and use as bases or detail. I like to recycle and re-use whenever possible. I also like that an object that is individually sourced will suggest ideas for designs and colours to develop in the finished item. Some of my pieces have strong geometric patterns, influenced by Moorish and Islamic art and architecture. Other pieces explore curves, waves and spirals, inspired by the natural world and classical mosaic art. Each item is unique, finished with craftsmanship and attention to detail.
