‘The Tea Picker’ – Sugar cube mosaic
My latest mosaic has just been unveiled at the Experimental Food Society Spectacular. She was made to complement the breathable tea bar at the exhibition. I was invited to become a member of the society just over a year ago and it is rather exciting to be in such a select group with great artists like Bompas and Parr and Blanch & Shock.

The piece is called The Tea Picker and is made out of 4220 sugar cubes. Each has been individually handpainted and then fixed in position. It has taken me about two months to construct and she will be getting another airing at the Experimental Food Society Banquet on 14th and 15th November, so if you would like to see her in the flesh, the chance is still there to buy tickets!
