My two mediums of choice are wire and mosaics. I create wire creatures that can go inside or outside your home…..hummingbirds, dragonflies, birds, humans. I also create art for your garden….mosaics (pots, bowls, pictures), hypertufa pots and faces and cement leaves. I also give 2 hour workshops so you can also learn to make these garden items.
From Iris’s website: For Iris nature is art in its purest form. From it she gains tranquility, inspiration and strength. Capturing a movement, a colour or a line seen in a bird, a flower, or a gust of wind can be a very exciting moment.
Within the ordered life of mosaics, Iris accepts the challenge of taking the ordinary and transforming it into the extra-ordinary through the use of colour, texture and movement. Her mosaic “canvases” range from mannequin forms to simple pieces of board. “In my mosaic work, the excitement lies in the juxtaposition of pieces. I want to create a statement of colour, of movement, of texture; of an emotion captured.
