The Mosaic Seed was Planted
On the way home in the van, the group discussed the possibility of creating a similarly impressive mosaic at London Clay Art Centre. A member of the travelling team placed a photo of one of Zagar’s mosaics on her fridge. It was a constant reminder of the possibility for something grand at LCAC. Six years later the opportunity presented itself, the postcard sprung to mind, and...the rest is history!
In 2017, artists Beth Turnbull Morrish and Susan Day, went to Philadelphia to attend a mosaic installation workshop with Isaiah Zagar, the artist behind The Magic Garden in Philadelphia where our vision originated. The technical information they learned from Zagar was critical to the structural integrity of LCAC's finished piece, taking into consideration the severe temperature fluctuations we experience in Southwestern Ontario.
