More Peter Crisp Mosaics…

I just can’t help it… I was thinking about all the mosaic Peter Crisp has done on his property and my initial post just didn’t do it all justice… So I thought I’d put more up 🙂 In the gardens he has had these two walls built out of besa blocks which then have the 2 main murals I posted back in December. The rear of these walls, that must be well over 12 feet tall, have mosaics aswell but they remain unfinished. On the sides he has mosaiced some medallions too, unfortunately most of them are hidden behind a huge pittosporum hedge. Well, of course being the mosaic maniac that I am, it didn’t stop me which in hindsight would’ve been hilarious to witness! 🙂

Being a glass artist, he has used all glass with the odd glass gem thrown in here and there.

So here they all are, in all their glory! Just click on the photo to see the full size.

In the entrance to his gift shop he has mosaiced part of the floor and put an iron pergola over the top weighted down by mosaiced concrete blocks. From memory his shop has a lavendar theme which is also portrayed in the floor.

So much work, but so very inspiring too! It makes me want to get to it and go crazy in my garden!
