The International Encounters of Mosaic of Chartres in France, ended on 6th November with the prize giving ceremony and my work, "The Ripples must be endless" received a great prize in the professional category... my first ever prize!!
But in all honesty, the biggest prize was to receive the amazing responses and greetings from so many people around the world. The warmth and generosity shared by all these messages will remain with me for a long time... That was in a way my most precious prize!!!
Chartres this year proved once again to be a major event in the world of mosaic in Europe, some remarkable works on display, a whole city glowing and pulsing a the pace of interlocking matter and the thousands of visitors who came from all around the EU to witness the incredible variety of what contemporary mosaic is about!
