"Creation" (aptly named by the customer) was made in 2010 for the customer's office wall. It is made with venetian smalti and gold leaf glass mosaic and framed in a charcoal coloured wood frame. It is 600mm x 600mm.
I was a bit apprehensive about commissioning a piece of art work at a distance based only on examples of Kate's work seen on her website, however, the final outcome more than justifies my faith. The delivered piece has exceeded my expectations and has pride of place in my office - I am sure it will be a source for quiet contemplation for years to come -

"Ten Phases of the Sun" was commissioned by the Bilston Gallery, near Wolverhampton, as part of their exhibition "Ten" which celebrated 10 years of opening. It is 10cm x 100cm (each panel being 10cm x 10cm). The exhibition ran from May - September 2009. It is currently in the gallery's collection.
"Sensory Kite Mosaic" made with Stained glass, mosaic glass (green used upside down for texture), glass nuggets and pebbles in 2004. It is 6 metres long. The mosaic was installed on a curved wall for the James Hopkins Trust sensory garden. The garden was built for severely disabled children. The kite was the Trust's logo. The customer required the materials to be textured so the children could touch it. As an added dimension I worked with Colin Sanders of Environetics who built sensors that were placed between the bows of the kite. Each one makes a different sound when touched or when standing within half a metre away.
