More Mosaics!

Over the last few weeks I’ve been making more mosaic coasters, however unlike my previous equestrian themed pieces, these have more of a classical flavour.

Mosaic Flower Coasters

These coasters have been designed with Romano-British mosaics in mind, in particular the influence of flower and natural motifs are evident here. In classical art natural imagery, blooms and flowers have connotations of abundance, fertility, and plenty; all aspects of importance to an agrarian society, and sympathetic to dining room contexts.  Therefore it is with these assumptions and suggestions in mind that I have created this design, also I think it looks quite pretty (I hope you agree)

To give a sense of perspective the coasters selves are 100mm x 100mm and constructed onto felt backed MDF.  The felt is a useful addition as it prevents them scratching any surface that they may be laid on, also they’ve been grouted with a waterproof grout meaning that any spills on them can be easily wiped off.

All in all, a practical and pretty set of Romano inspired coasters
