Mosaic commissions

Helen Miles would be delighted to undertake mosaic commissions to suit your particular needs. Mosaic motifs can be incorporated almost anywhere; they are popular in bathroom and  kitchen settings as they make ideal splash backs but they can also be placed above door frames, inlaid into floors, used as house names or numbers, or set into interior walls and window indents.

Their classic, enduring quality means they make ideal presents for special occasions: why not commision a wedding or anniversary mosaic and have the date literally set in stone?

Any size, any place

Mosaics can either be made on exterior grade marine plywood which is sealed and treated to give it extra waterproofing and durability (see Cave Petrum mosaic below), or made on mesh as with the wall plaque above.

If the mesh option is chosen, the mosaic can be transported and installed exactly like normal floor or wall tiling. Larger pieces can be cut into sections to facilitate the transport process and then assembled and grouted on site, as shown here:
