Mosaic vase of flowers
Floral emblems

My latest mosaic project is finished! These flowers are the floral emblems of the states and territories of Australia. Made from recycled plates and mugs, they come together to form a beautiful bouquet. The picassiette flowers are my own design.
60x45cm (Crockery, tinted mortar, glass tiles, ceramic vase)

In these days of pandemic lockdowns, and border closures its good to remember that we are still one nation. There is beauty in unity, even in our diversity. My prayer is that we may all work together for the good of our nation and the well being of others, putting aside our divisions and self focus.

The flowers are as follows:
Waratah -NSW
Pink heath – Victoria
Royal Bluebell – ACT
Sturt Desert Rose – NT
Cooktown orchid – QLD
Sturt Desert Pea – SA
Tasmanian Blue Gum – TAS
Kangaroo Paw – WA

Proud to be an Australian!
