Mosaics date back to the dawn of civilization at Mesopotamia, where architects used small colored objects to decorate the temples in Uruk in the forth millennium B.C. The Greeks and Romans used pebbles and shells to make pictorial composition around the fourth century B.C.

Throughout the centuries many varieties of tesserae have been used to make mosaics. 


This mini mosaic shows a brightly coloured starfish, crafted from tiny little ceramic tiles, all handcut in my studio. The tiles are only 2-3mm thick and very fragile. The centre is a single piece of millefiori, the beautiful, Italian, 'glass of a million flowers'.

The mosaic measures  approx. 12cm x 12cm and comes with a small wooden easel for display.


This mosaic is crafted on plywood. It should not be allowed to get wet. 

If you would like a mini mosaic that can be placed outside, please contact me.
