"Nodules" by Karen Baker.
This piece of wall art was inspired by my experiences when mining gemstones in Western Australia. When the backhoe is working away, scraping back ground, sometimes you get a first glimpse at what lies beneath, sometimes it is a seam being uncovered, veins of material you are looking for, or nodules of gemstones. They are exciting moments.
This mosaic features some Western Australian mined Chrysoprase, some rough Peridot and some Bush Gravel. Other material is Vibrant Glass Tiles. Size is : 30x45cms
"Night Sky"- inspired by a night by the campfire,gazing at the sky and satellite spotting.
Materials: Jasper beads, porcelain tile, pyrite blobbies, thinset.

Inspiration: This girl is a enjoying being in the sea while it is raining. I experienced this many times in my childhood afternoons swimming in the ocean in Papua New Guinea. The coolness of the water, the heat of the air, and the large drops of water is such a vivid sensory recollection of JOY!.

Inspiration: This mosaic came into being as a commentary on a relationship. My experience showed me that there are some people who just do not feel, and who surprise you by just being so absent and cold, and then when you shine a little light further onto them you feel they must be made of stone.

Materials used: Glass tile, Stained glass, Murano Millefiori, unglazed porcelain tile, Eco Smalti.
Inspiration: this mosaic depicts the relationships I have with people and show the fact they are connected to me forever. Some relationships like the one illustrated in red was a significant one that saved my life and helped me to regain a self, others show my heart connecting with others because of kindness they have showed me, or time they have taken to assist me, or just smile at me as they walk down the street.
p.s.(Interestingly I just heard about a cultural belief that people come into the world with invisible red strands around their ankles connected to all those souls they will be involved with in their lifetime. This resonated with me. What a concept. I love it. I feel another mosaic on the way.... )
