eric gill eve mosaic

Even though he was a controversial figure, I am drawn to the simplicity of the lines of his work, both in his bas relief sculpture which was chipped directly onto the surface of the stone to cut away the pattern so that the shapes of the body were raised above the surface of the stone and also his wood engravings.

Eve – this wood engraving is at Tate Britain and translated well into mosaic form, made from unglazed ceramic tiles.  I am no fan of snakes so left this part out of the picture!
