Artist comment: “Down under” is a commissioned 6 seat outdoor table . Client wasn’t very demanding – she simply wanted to see some fish (design from a tablemat), a crab & plenty of colour.

Since I’ve been keen to do another underwater scene for a while, this was a very enjoyable commission. I’m no diver, so most of the inspiration came from books, and it was really very difficult to settle on individual corals & the crab,

You can see from the photos, that some of tiles created a nice coral effect without excessive cutting, and others (like the starfish) were at the other extreme, and took ages to create.

Loved making this one. Photos of the finished table below.
