Mahemuda Arsalani

My inspiration comes mainly from the infinite form, patterns & colours of nature.  Nature’s palette with a pinch of the abstract, Islamic geometry – bright, vibrant and usually lots of swirls!  Designs incorporating glass and ceramic tiles, gemstones and beads, with an Islamic/Arabic influence.
Beginners/intermediate mosaic workshops offered – please contact me for details.

Community mosaic paving stone now installed in the Green Backyard gardens

I have designed and coordinated several community mosaics in and around Peterborough.  The biggest & most recent one being the Froglife mural, commissioned by the charity Froglife and installed at the Green Backyard on Oundle Rd.  This 4ft by 8ft glass mosaic mural was created with the help of over 100 volunteers (most of whom were complete beginners in mosaic art) and took 5 months to complete through workshops held twice a week at The Green Backyard.  It is situated on the back of a sheltered bench, beside the pond and depicts images of plants and animals found in and around the pond.    The mural represents a celebration of the community who came together, braving some of the coldest winter months, to create a masterpiece!

The Froglife mural installed at The Green Backyard, Peterborough.

 

Last year I was commissioned by the Uppingham In Bloom Committee to deliver a community mosaic project in Uppingham, Leicestershire.  We designed and created a beautiful mosaic flower-covered stone plinth to commemorate and celebrate 35 years of the annual ‘Uppingham in Bloom’ event.  This piece was installed in one of the flower beds in the town centre & Uppingham went on to win the East Midlands In Bloom Gold Award 2018

A self-taught artist, I became addicted to the art of mosaic in 2002 and have been creating vibrant glass and ceramic mosaics for over 20 years. My inspiration comes mostly from the infinite patterns, forms and colours found in nature. Many of my creations are also influenced by my Arab-Islamic heritage which is reflected in designs featuring Arabic calligraphy, Islamic geometry and Middle-Eastern architecture. I create a wide variety of decorative and functional, indoor and outdoor mosaics. Commissions accepted
