Mosaic is posh (or what this blog is about)


As I was trying to find something appropriate as a cover for my Facebook Page, I was thinking about what message I have been trying to give to my readers and fans since I started the blog and how this blog has evolved.

It didn't take long to come up with the motto "Mosaic is posh" as I'm already using the word "posh" in my designs. But that's not the reason why. I mean, yes, mosaic is a trend - a timeless trend - and it's associated with prestige and times of prosperity (think Hellenistic times, 6th century and 11th century Byzantium) but mosaic is more than that.

Mosaic can be an inspiration for people who are not directly involved in mosaic making. In my case, I have used mosaic in combination with other things, to show its importance and its influence. I have located clothes, accessories, scarfs, objects that "subconsciously" had mosaic in them and I mosaicologised them. And I did this "unconsciously".

For about three years, I have been doing just that. Bringing mosaic closer to those who don't know it, who never had the chance to touch a mosaic tile or who might have ignored the perfect beauty of mosaic floors. I wanted to exalt mosaic.

I once remember someone's comment that said: "Thanks to you and your blog, I can no longer ignore mosaic floors!"

When I saw Dolce and Gabbana's recent Tailored Mosaic collection, besides almost fainting out of excitement, I knew I was RIGHT. And will you believe that long before the Tailored Mosaic's first appearance on the catwalk, I was envisioning prints of mosaics on silk fabric? But who am I to do such a thing?

If this is promoting mosaic art, I don't know. That's not my objective. My mission is mosaic as fashion and as a superb and exciting art form that's always "in".

Mosaic is posh!

Now thanks to

my seemingly pointless blogging now makes sense!

    1. Thank you Robert! Keep posting isn't always easy because time is very little but when I have something to share, I always "steal" that extra 10 minutes to do that. I hope to catch up with you again (you can also follow the blog via Facebook or email).
