I am a relatively new mosaic artist having started in 2014 but I've never stopped! I have had a love of crafting and creating for over 40 years and was previously a stained glass artist which has been a helpful skill to bring to my mosaic work. I mainly use recycled china & pottery plus stained glass, sea glass, beads and whatever else I can lay my hands on. I mainly make small, decorative items which I sell in shops locally and further afield in Scotland. I am also now experimenting with bigger projects including outdoor sculptural pieces and hope to undertake my first school project early in 2017.
I love the freedom of expression which mosaics bring to the creative process. Having gained knowledge and confidence in a range of the technical skills I am enjoying the opportunities to explore different styles and techniques- the fact that my work sells is a bonus and means I can keep creating in my lovely studio in the beautiful Scottish countryside. I also run one day workshops and participate in local arts events, craft fairs and Perthsire Open Studios. For examples of my work please see JUDYJAMJAR on Facebook.
