When I lived in Los Angeles a friend of a friend - who knew that I was a mosaic artist - asked if I could make her a wall hanging. Of course I said yes, having no idea what I was getting myself into. I went to her apartment where she gave me a lobster pot filled with her grandmothers broken plates and figurines that she had kept after the last earthquake and couldn't part with. Then she went around her living room handing me mementos from all her wonderful travels. Lastly she picked up a clay sculpture that she'd made in Kindergarten. I had my work cut out for me.
Much of my work I figure out as I go, and the results always amaze me. When the finished piece was hung on her wall, she burst into tears of delight. "It's as if you've known me all my life."
I have been creating these pieces ever since.
