Trafford Macmillan  Care Centred Mosaic Commission       HOW TO COMMISSION A MOSAIC

A mosaic commission usually begins with a discussion with a client regarding where they would like a mosaic to feature, mosaic size, ideas for a design & colour scheme, mosaic materials, timescales and finally a budget. Full guidance is provided throughout.

Once these initial ideas have been considered and agreed I would draw an initial design (or use one provided by the client) and email or mail a photograph to the client. Amendments to the initial design are made as requested. Once the design has been approved a payment of 50% of the cost of the completed mosaic is requested.

The mosaic is then created by myself or with clients (if forming part of a project). When the mosaic is completed the mosaic is dispatched or delivered (as agreed) with fixtures and fittings and installed (or instruction provided for installation, as initially agreed) by the date set. The remainder of the cost of the mosaic is paid by the client at this point.

Commissioning a mosaic is simple and adds a unique and special addition to any environment (indoors and out). Mosaics look great in a garden, bathroom, kitchen, hallway and conservatory. A mosaic commission for a restaurant, hotel or company logo can really make a powerful statement of 'we're well established and here to stay' - just as the Romans did!
Public mosaic art commission: Larkin with Toads 2010 in Hull       LARKIN WITH TOADS 2010

Larkin with Toads was a large scale, mass participation public art event that populated Hull with enormous decorated toads for 10 weeks during the summer of 2010.

This formed part of the Larkin25 festival ( celebrating the poem 'Toads'.

After the event my sponsors decided to purchase my mosaic toad during a charitable auction of the toads for permanent display outside Hull & East Riding Museum (36 High Street, Hull HU1 1NQ.)

School mosaic art created with St Mary's RC Primary School, Clayton-le-Moors, Lancashire       It was a busy week working with all the children of St Mary's RC Primary School in Clayton-le-Moors, Lancashire.

We created this mosaic to remember the much loved headteacher Ms Nolan who worked 25 years at the school.

The mosaic measures 120 x 90 cm and is displayed at the school entrance.

Great school and really lovely children and staff. A real pleasure.
