Mosaics on the Internet

March 22, 2008

I was curious to find out if my blog would be presented if I searched on the following:

”Mosaic Mannequin” 

     hhhh

Well, well, well!   What FUN is this?!   I found so many cool spots to give me visual treats of some outstanding artists that I must share.   However, not sure the protocol to do so, I will tease and entice you to click away on the links provided;  since, I’m sure they publish this to be found and enjoyed, I think I’m only helping with the marketing, right?

 

hhhhh 

Londonart.co.uk has a feature on Ed Chapman and they describe him as “…one of the UK’s leading mosaic artists working in ceramic and glass tile. Achieving incredibly accurate results, Chapman has taken the age old medium of mosaic to a modern high standard. His work incorporates all sorts of iconic imagery and his 3-D works are exciting and stylish, as well as being instantly recognisable.”     INCREDIBLE.    And be sure to check out the mannequin (8 of 70) he has ‘dressed’!     Click here for the slide show of his work.

Another wonderful site is a wordpress blog dedicated to mosaic art, Mosaic Art Source.    They have a photographic story on a fabulous artist Nek Chand in India.    More than incredible.   MORE!    I won’t even try to describe how heart-warming this post is for me.     So please check it out.

 kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

                     

OK, that’s enough for now.   Be assured, that I will soon be describing the process as I begin my own mosaic mannequin story.    The story of Willhelmina.

hhhhhh

(Willhelmina’s stylist was unable to come up with any kind of Easter Holiday outfit…  sorry.)

    I don’t know which fascinated me more about Ed Chapman’s work– the mosaics themselves, or the prices he commands for them!

    I can’t wait to see how these guys will influence and inspire you as you work on Wilhelmina.
