Mosaic artists' exhibition in Cirencester

Two local mosaic artists are staging a collaborative exhibition of their work at the Corinium Museum in Cirencester.

Nature in Shards, featuring the work of Yvette Green and Jo Moreman, launches at the museum on Thursday (January 13) at 10am.

Both artists have been creating mosaics for over 20 years and in that time have both honed their own very distinctive and unique styles.

Yvette, inspired by the intense colours found in her native homeland of South Africa, and her once-in-a-lifetime visit to the Costa Rica, uses vibrant and lustrous sheets of coloured glass, cutting and shaping each piece individually to form glorious, sculptured pieces of work for the home and garden.

Jo predominantly uses unglazed ceramic tesserae, cutting the tiles to form intricate elements to her creations, and giving her work a more traditional feel. Fauna, flora, folk art, myths, and legends play a large part in the influence of her work, with pretty metal, ceramic and other embellishments plus mirror to add an extra dimension to her pieces.

Both artists have a real passion for the natural world around them and are most content when exploring the great outdoors, seeing what natural forms and wonders mother nature has created, with this and their enthusiasm of creating mosaics they have come together to form a collection of work for this one-off exhibition.

You can view and buy pieces of their work at various outlets in and around the Cotswold area including at the Corinium Museum, plus they both work to commission.

The exhibition runs at the Corinium Museum until Sunday, February 27, at 5pm.
