Joanna Kessel Mosaic

Designer / maker

Edinburgh, Midlothian


mosaic, cast concrete, abstract


£325 — £3950


Joanna’s work is highly respected within the international contemporary mosaic arena.  She is interested in mosaic as a contemporary craft rooted in history - the jewel-like qualities of hand-cut mosaic tesserae and the time it takes to create an exquisitely crafted object.  The work inhabits a place where craft-meets-art-meets-design-meets architecture and explores material relationships - ordinary and precious – juxtaposing gold leaf smalti with cast concrete to create architectural mosaics.
