This Northern Flicker mosaic is being donated for the silent auction at the Salah Bachir Show in support of St. Joseph’s Health Centre here in Toronto. This work is made with a combination of broken crockery and smalti tiles. It’s 38 inches beak to tail.
We installed the McCracken Cardinal at a delightfully eclectic bungalow in Brampton Ontario. This mosaic is made from “everything but the kitchen sink” – from broken crockery to smalti tiles to erector set pieces. This piece has a great wall with lots of daylight, which will change it’s appearance as the light changes through the day.
Camp Oochigeas is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that provides kids with and affected by childhood cancer unique opportunities for growth through challenging, fun, enriching and magical experiences.
This includes a camp in Muskoka as well as activities at their space at College and Bathurst in Toronto. I toured their Toronto facility today and it is really wonderful.
We’re very pleased to support the Camp Ooch Paddle Project by creating the mosaic work, Featherweight. The paddle project has been happening since 2010. It was set up to raise awareness and funds by showcasing one-of-a-kind paddles designed by artists and celebrities. A selection of paddles will be auctioned at the Imagine the Magic Gala while others will be sold online through the Online #PaddleProject Auction.
To learn more about Camp Ooch and the #PaddleProject please visit their website. We encourage you to support them if you can. They’re doing great work.
We recently installed these two male cardinals at a home in Paris Ontario. They’re hanging on a set of wires which are designed for roses and clematis to grow on. As the plants mature, they can grow around the mosaics.
These cardinals are traditional mosaics made with smalti glass tiles.
