I was commissioned to design and make a mosaic celebrating the invention of the World Wide Web by Sir Tim Berners-Lee who grew up in East Sheen.
I was delighted and honoured to accept this commission (by local community group Mortlake with East Sheen Society) and started researching what I could include and how to go about making it. Six months later I had finally created a large mosaic panel (measuring 130cm square) consisting almost entirely of individual ceramic pieces, all carefully made, fired and assembled together here at my home studio in East Sheen. It includes words and symbols associated with computers as well as QR codes of the websites which give information about Sir Tim and his work.
My proudest and most exciting moment was actually meeting and talking to this amazing man, who came to unveil my artwork on 24th June 2013, in front of a huge crowd of local people.
