Cleo Mussi

Cleao Mussi at the V+A shop

One of the things I make sure I do if i'm near the V+A is to check out the Crafts Council showcases in the shop there. This time it was the work by mosaic artist Cleo Mussi that caught my eye- I liked the way the pieces of ceramic have been joined together with no attempt made at hiding the breaks. Unlike this piece by Melabo:

which has been made using slip cast techniques so the joins between the deer head and the man's body are invisible (and which I will buy just as soon as I can).
