40 – Grace
Design Concept: Pupils from Cleeve Primary School
Artist: Natalie Guy
Sponsor: North Point Shopping Centre
Location: Main Atrium, North Point Shopping Centre, HU7 4EE
About the Design:
‘Grace’ is a combination of designs stemming from those produced by pupils at Cleeve Primary School.
The pupils designed moths individually, creating a mosaic after researching Amy Johnson and the period of time she lived in. The collection of designs were finalised into a display inspired by the glamour and culture of the 1930s, detailing buildings and patterns. The moth has a limited colour palette of red, black and white and the reflective quality of mirrors.
About the Creative Team:
Mosaic artist, Natalie Guy, worked with manager of North Point Shopping Centre, Louise Smith, and the centre’s chosen school, Cleeve Primary School, to create this moth.
Year 4 pupils at the school were asked to mosaic ‘fans’ to contribute to the final design. Their work was then adapted into the end result and produced by Natalie.
Natalie became a mosaic artist following a successful career in fashion and teaching. She now runs workshops and takes on mosaic commissions for public and private exhibition.
