Deb Dodd drew upon this image in responding to a Day in a Week of My Life - Day 1 - B&W Challenge recently. If you would like to find out more about the processes Deb uses to complete cup stack wall hangings, check out this post from on her 'Deb Dodd Mosaics' site..
There are many other process oriented projects on the 'Deb Dodd Mosaics' Facebook page, a terrific resource for beginning mosaic artists looking for inspiration.

NEA artisans were actively involved in a 'Meet the Maker' market place in the space next to the NEA building during the 'Wall to Wall' festival. There was a hub of activity throughout the festival at the Mosaic tent, where Deb had prepared a 'sampler table' as a taster experience for community members to develop skills in making mosaics. People left after spending at least an hour developing their mosaic 'tile' on the table' feeling quite proud of it - but have not seen the final product. It has been grouted and is currently located in the courtyard behind the events room. It looks very colourful, has a mosaic'd 2016 on it and over time will find its own place at NEA.
