First steps to the mosaic art world, Cyprus, 2003

First mosaic art studio, Cyprus, 2003

After renting a small but effective art studio I continued experimenting to create  mosaic tile art  The next step was buying a ceramic tile cutter. I was experimenting and learning by my self which I’m grateful for. With this kinda ceramic cutter I could cut a ceramic tile ( 30 cm x 3o cm ) into smaller size and maybe try to use the hammer after this process could be a good idea. It was a good idea but it also took me to another level because I was able to cut straight lines by using this ceramic tile cutter. And because of costs was rising I needed to get small mosaic work projects to pay bills and the rent of the studio. This is actually the part where the ” art ” section disappears. I knew already that is wasn’t easy to sell mosaic works like the one I created ( the bean mosaic ) in the market but I knew it is possible to respond to house owners requests. I was aware that geometrical formed mosaic works placed in ceramic tile shops already and it was sort of a product that I could produce as well by using a ceramic tile cutter. I didn’t took a long time that cutting triangles and similar kinda shapes wasn’t that easy but I was always good in geometry which helped me a lot to understand where and how to cut ceramic tiles to generate any kinda geometric form.
