Anne Martin creates mosaic masterpieces!

Topiary pear trees laden with ripe yellow fruit, vines dripping with plump green grapes, pencil pines in pretty pots, flowering bird of paradise plants, birds, frogs, fish and fountains are just some of the stars of her amazing, colourful garden – and they are all made of mosaic!

Anne originally trained as a fashion designer and later was craft editor for Woman’s Day. Since the year 2000 she has applied her expertise in the use of colour to create stunning mosaics – from very large panels that cover entire walls to small birdbaths and bowls.  To ensure she has the perfect materials for a particular design, Anne often makes her own three-dimensional tiles which are hand glazed and fired in vibrant colours in shapes of petals, leaves, fruit, fish or whatever is needed to create her picture.

Her front garden is planted with Australian natives so she has created several mosaic pieces in earthy colours to complement the planting. From the lovely old lychgate at the entrance, a wide path is decorated with circles of coloured pebbles, bricks and pavers with a stunning large mosaicked urn as the centre piece. Further into the garden sitting among the foliage are three brightly tiled plinths topped with terracotta water bowls.

In the back garden several walls have been transformed with mosaics; the spectacular wood oven is tiled to depict a feast, and the top of the outdoor table a ceramic banquet! Pots, urns and water bowls have all been embellished with Anne’s creative and complex designs.

There is a large entertainment area and a well-stocked vegetable garden.

With time and attention to detail Anne has perfected the art of mosaics and created a garden that is unique, vibrant and spectacular!

 

Extra activities: Owner/artist will do walk and talk at 11am and 2pm both days on garden and mosaic artworks. 

Size: 0.15ha; 0.3 acres.
