Mosaic Work

This Art Nouveau Mosaic was completed at Thornton Grammar School in 2004. The students made individual ceramic motifs; flowers, birds, insects; which were incorporated into the design.

Funding came via the gifted and talented pupils scheme.

We used exterior plywood for the base boards, which were coated in waterproof PVA. After grouting, each unit was further sealed with silicon. The mosaic is now 8 years old but looks as fresh as the day it was installed.
