Sarah Bourne – Artist
My affection for timeworn, vintage objects was instilled in me at a very young age by my parents – some of my earliest childhood memories include standing in jumble sale queues, anticipating what treasures I might find whilst rummaging on the White Elephant stall!
As a teenager I collected vintage games and toys and had an innate desire to make things from discarded objects found around the house.
When I specialized in sculpture during my fine art degree at Camberwell College of Art, I mixed found objects with building materials in a conceptual way that I didn’t fully understand at the time.
However, it all makes perfect sense today, because here I am, re-purposing everyday objects, giving them a new lease of life and finding beauty in broken things!!!
I earned the nickname Mosaic Mum from my children when I became hooked on mosaics – if I’m not in my studio making mosaics then you’ll find me taking lifestyle portraits and photographing events.
If you decide you would like to own a unique piece from the Mosaic Mum ‘vintage homeware’ range, or commission me with a bespoke idea of your own, or even have aspirations to try making a mosaic for yourself – then please get in touch, I would love to hear from you.
