DESCRIPTION:
This wall mosaic was originally made as one of a set of three hand-painted mosaics for the exhibition celebrating the International Year of Planet Earth at Opus Mosaic Gallery in Exeter, in 2008. Earth, Fire and Water were represented, and Superplume has the strength of intensity of colour and textural depth that describes the rage and energy of that phenomenon. It has also been shown at several venues including the Reghed Centre in Cumbria.
