I am SO excited to tell you all about this amazing new Public Art Project!

I have designed and will facilitating the making of a large Mosaic Artwork for St James Square in Muswell Hill. The Artwork both names the square and features elements from the Edwardian buildings in the area (the plasterwork, woodwork and stained glass windows).  The decorative features were heavily influenced by the Greeks in the 1800’s. One of the common motifs in the area is a bunch of grapes which symbolises Prosperity and Longevity, so I have included them in the design.  The Artwork will be made of lots of hand cut ceramic tiles (hand cut by me!) that have been kindly donated by Topps Tiles, the U.K’s leading tile supplier. It will be permanently displayed in St James Square.

This Artwork is a celebration of the vibrant community in Muswell Hill and the stunning architecture of the area. It is my hope that it gives a sense of place, pride and ownership to all those that take part and enriches the lives of all those who pass it every day. The Project is self-initiated and self-funded. If you would like to donate to the making of this Artwork, you can do so in the donation box on the day, or send money via Paypal using the email leona@artistsresource.co.uk.
