Ruth has been passionate about the arts all her life studying them in various forms. In 2003, when she completed her first mosaic, she knew this ancient art form was to be her future. As a mosaicist, Ruth is influenced by her environment and Wells, England’s smallest city, and her home for over 45 years, provides a constant source of inspiration.
Much of Ruth’s work is commission based, privately or through public art - you may remember her wonderfully elegant mosaic swan, “Arcus”, from the “Swans of Wells” event. Over the years Ruth has honed her skills, underpinned by her natural creativity. She works with a broad range of materials and techniques to produce exquisitely detailed pieces. Ruth loves every step of the creative process from developing initial concepts and ideas, through to completion of art works.
Sheena Spacey's folk art ceramics and paintings are an antidote to the high-speed world we inhabit. They’re innocent, simple and reassuring. "I like my work to evoke a sense of nostalgia for quiet days gone by, where home and storytelling offer comfort and a haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday living,"
Jane has worked in various artistic media for most of her life, but only in recent years did she discover a passion for mosaics. Trained in technique by highly regarded mosaic artist Elizabeth de Ath , Jane has also visited many of the meccas of the mosaic world for inspiration, including Ravenna, Venice, Chartres and Barcelona. In a relatively short space of time she has produced an impressive portfolio and has already completed several commissions.
Jane specialises in micro-mosaics, a style which involves clipping the tiles into small – sometimes tiny – shaped pieces, quite different from the “roman villa” style of mosaics familiar to most of us. The recent work on show here are created from the tiny workings from inside watches.
