Buy Original Mosaic Work Online!!

For the first time, I have included two of my recent works for sale on the website!! I’m interested to find out if people would prefer to purchase work in this way……

The website has attracted lots of customers looking for good quality mosaic kits and a lot of people interested in commissioning either bespoke kits or bespoke finished works. Now there’s another option. You can buy a Tracey Cartledge mosaic.

Its so much fun!!

With a combination of mosaic stepping stone kits, refills and maybe throw in a 2 or 3 extra moulds for convenience, why not host an arty party to make your own mosaic stepping stones for the garden path?

Margaret’s Bench, Norton Priory

Update: April 2011

The mosaic has now been given a render surround:

June 2010

The cob and mosaic bench outside the Walled Garden at Norton Priory was formally unveiled on Sunday to celebrate the life and work of Margaret Walhurst, a former director of Norton Priory Museum who worked hard to make the museum what it is today.

The sculptural bench was built by Annabel Fawcus of Earthed World with lots of help from Year 6 pupils from St. Augustine’s Primary School in Runcorn. The class also worked with Tracey to create the mosaic features that have been incorporated into the back of the seat and on the wall above it.

In addition to the new bench, a new mosaic trail has been created by people with links to the garden, both past and present, and celebrates what makes the garden so unique. The Museum staff used the school/community group mosaic stepping stone kit to work with participants in the creation of the trail.
