Marian Shapiro, one of Australia’s most exciting and innovative mosaic artists creates original, hand crafted, contemporary mosaic pieces using traditional methods. Coming from a background of fine art and theatre, she became fascinated by the possibilities of this ancient art and has been a full-time mosaicist for the past five years.

The exquisite three-dimensional mosaic pieces in Marian’s new Forbidden Fruit series comprise fantastical plant and flower forms, inspired by nature but not limited by it. These pieces clearly show her diversity and ingenuity as an artist. To begin working with an art form with such a rich and varied history as mosaics and be able to offer something completely new and exciting is an admirable feat.

Clive Hillier’s beautiful fused glass has been gracing the galleries of Sydney and the Blue Mountains for the past seven years. This was a natural progression from his work as an architectural stained glass artist, which he continues to this day. His work on domestic and heritage buildings is in high demand and he has undertaken numerous commissions for both individuals and commercial organisations.

Clive’s large sculptural wall plates are much sought after items being hung as the centrepiece in many homes. These spectacular pieces are testament to a keen eye for colour, shape and form. Compiled of layers of opaque glass, the three dimensional elements of these essentially two dimensional pieces ensure maximum impact.
