Wendron Sculpture

Topps and the BAMM judges were delighted with the high standard of entry in the first year of the competition, 2008. “Wow, these entries are amazing. You must be delighted with the high standard and level of creativity. It’s real proof of what you say about all the young talent out there. We are really proud to be associated with bringing it (and childrens’ mosaics) into the limelight” - Viv Johns, Topps Tiles

BAMM, www.bamm.org.uk, hope that schools will be encouraged by the fabulous mosaics entered in 2008 to enter the 2009 competition. If you feel inspired to enter but have not yet made a mosaic with your school please read the articles posted by mosaic artists, with hints and tips on the process of mosaic making with children, on the BAMM site under EDUCATION and also on the Education pages of this site. Topps Tiles have been involved on the community promoting mosaic for many years and some of the projects supported by them can be viewed on the Community page.

This mosaic project was submitted to Mega Mosaic Makers 2008.

Description

THIRD PRIZE - The project as described by Tom Bennett… “We made the Gaudi seat from old smashed up tiles. Some students from Helston Community College that were studying design and technology came and cemented the body of a snake. When it was dry we used tiles of all different colours and sizes to make lots of different animals like barn owls and basking sharks. We stuck the animals onto sticky back plastic to hold them together while we stuck them on with cement”…

“Thank you BAMM for choosing our Gaudi Seat, it is a nice feature to our school and visitors come to see the seat” Terri Baguley

“Each of the children got to do a mosaic piece, we did Cornish wildlife, owls, bees birds butterflies and flowers. With the prize money we might be able to make another piece of mosaic” …Anna Thwaites
