Exterior floor mosaic in Penarth, Cardiff



This mosaic was commissioned by the Old Penarth Community Forum as a feature for a local community park and it was completed in April 2009. It depicts famous landmarks of the seaside town of Penarth, past and present, and was designed as a functional compass rose. The final design was by local landscape architect, Steve Welchman, and it was fabricated in my studio in Cardiff in 50x50mm porcelain mosaic tiles. The completed mosaic was adhered to purpose-built glass reinforced concrete slabs which were made by Specialist Precast Products of Cardiff, who also installed the finished piece.
