Mandala created with ceramic tile on an aluminium honeycomb backing.

This colourful work is an original design.

Artist comment:

“Springburst” is another design that had been conceived for a while – we’d drawn the leaves and played with the shades of green long ago, but for this work we designed a celtic style border & put it on a background.

The work represents the “burst” of spring from winter fuelled by the sun (in centre) – the new growth on plants and the general “busy-ness” of nature. The Celtic style border represents the human celebration of this time.

Perhaps the most difficult part of this piece was the spiralled background – each row had to be constructed with slightly larger squares – quite a bit of math was necessary for that to work.
