BAL have lent their backing to a mosaic artist taking part in The Big Sleuth; a fund-raising initiative organised by Wild in Art and Birmingham Children’s Hospital. More than 200 large and small fibreglass bears are currently being decorated by artists, schools and community groups across the West Midlands.
Caroline Jariwala, a member of the British Association for Modern Mosaic, has created Sweet William Bear; fixing the mosaics with BAL Max Flex Fibre tile adhesive and grouting with BAL Micromax2 Ebony.
Sweet William Bear has been on display in front of Birmingham Cathedral since 11th July as part of a city art trail. Each bear will be sold off in a charity auction in the autumn to raise money for the children’s hospital.
Caroline said: “The mosaic features ceramic tiles, porcelain and broken vintage crockery and draws inspiration from Shakespeare’s love of flowers used in his plays and sonnets,” says Jariwala. “The Sweet William flower is said to been named after the Bard himself! A fitting name for a flora related bear! I have I have been using BAL Max Flex Fibre which has been wonderful to use and BAL Micromax2 Ebony grout. The texture, durability and true black finish of the grout is perfect to complete the project.
