“Amanda’s mosaic menagerie of birds and other creatures are hand made using stained glass in a kaleidoscope of colours, jewel-like millefiori and patterned ceramic pieces intricately cut and constructed. She finishes her mosaics with a dark charcoal grout to give them a deep rich and seductive quality. Among her influences are the vibrant textiles and embroidery of India and Mexico, as well as a love of natural history, kinetic sculpture and vintage mechanical birds.” – Amanda Anderson.
