About Lindsey Kennedy
My studio is hidden away in a small historic courtyard in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. It is in the stable of what was William Hazeldine's house at the bottom of the Wyle Cop. He was one of the Ironmasters of the Industrial Revolution, so it is an amazing environment to work in with other craft workers.
I design and make contemporary craft mosaics for the home and garden. Originally I trained as jeweller and silversmith at Birmingham School of Jewellery, and now I have transferred many of those gem-setting skills to larger mosaic designs. I am still very attracted to using highly reflective materials and surface patterns, textiles and colour. Influences come from interests in historic embroidery and gardens. Recent work has developed through mosaic floristry, as interventions in garden borders and as interior wall panels. I am also interested in 1930s graphics influencing the profiles I cut for backing boards, dark grout enhancing the linear quality of the tiled patterns and richly coloured textured surfaces.
My work is available to commission but my mosaics are also on display in my studio and in several galleries situated around the country. In November 2018 I was thrilled to be accepted as a member of the Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Craft.
