Namibian mosaics

Late last year I came across Forest Mosaic based in Namibia.

Chiharu Rosenberg a mosaic artist originally from Japan, creates her colourful works from her studio in Omaruru Namibia.

Using a variety of materials including recycled tiles, she cuts every piece by hand (not a power tool in sight!).

I just love her baobab mosaics; they are oh so African!
