Description

Swirling around a delicious, coffee-brown central piece, this decadent arrangement of caramel and chocolate coloured tiles looks good enough to eat.

Intricacy and precision are evident in the construction of this beautiful mosaic bowl, by John Crichton. The materiality of this piece references the Pan Pacific Modernist Movement of which Crichton was a pioneer.
