THERE HAS BEEN LOTS GOING ON IN THE BUDD STUDIO THIS LAST MONTH
I am just about to install the first of two doorstep panels for the clothing company Seasalt who are opening new shops in Bath and Dorchester.
Here are some photos of the Bath panel just finished on the bench
In between working on these a lovely colourful private commission;
A pictorial "life" story birthday gift for my patrons friend.
(from 12 o'clock position, Swedish emblems, the London Eye, Thames and nephews and nieces initials, Hibiscus from Barbados, nurses buckle with birthdate, more Swedish symbols, Blueberries from her mothers garden, Barbados symbols, convertible morris minor, dogs past and present, London scooter, and finally a tranquil garden)
I have just completed a series of workshops with pupils at Sevenoaks School. It will form the colourful part of a water feature for the school grounds (photos below)
And the rather architectural moulds below are 5 of a total of 17 mosaic castings that will form the emblem of the Andover Rotary Club for a performance space in Vigo Park, Andover.
AND FINALLY MY NEW BOOK IS OUT TODAY!!
"MASTERS OF MOSAIC" published by Robert Hale
I hope to have a review to blog shortly
