“Opus – a creative piece of work in any field of the arts.  In mosaic art, opus refers to the technique of positioning the tesserae.

I have worked for many years on my own practice, specialising in mosaics, portraits, painting and drawing.  This exhibition will be an eclectic mix of work, some old some new.

The natural world inspires me and this interest led to qualifications and experience in horticulture and garden design.  I am a multiple award winning garden designer, and my art, which is inspired by people, nature and geometric patterns, is reflected in my designs.” 

The Calor Stepping Stone Garden

Dawn's 4th show garden at Bloom, Phoenix Park, Dublin.

Calor have teamed up with multiple award winning, garden designer, Dawn Aston and Contractor Alan Smyth for Bloom 2014. This is a fantastic opportunity for Calor to demonstrate the features of their award winning innovation, the Calor Mini-BBQ.

This compact garden is designed for a modern urban lifestyle, where the BBQ can be used, with it’s Geometric ‘star’ patio and functional ‘kitchen’ island / Gravel area with ornamental, aromatic, herbal plants and fruits/ Contemporary artworks by Dawn Aston and Hazel Revington Crosse.

Rory Morahan, the Druid Chef will be demonstrating the BBQ in the garden, with delicious samples and lots of great promotions on offer. Clever, compact and easy to use, the Calor Mini BBQ is perfect for outdoor cooking, in the garden, on the balcony or out and about. Find out more at www.calorgas.ie/living.

Special offers available at the show, so be sure to look for the Calor garden this year!

Well that's another Bloom garden festival over!  Bloom 14 was a lovely show with diverse events, exhibits and show gardens.   I take my hat off to the organisers Bord Bia and Eventhaus as this is a mega show that is thoroughly established as a must see event in Ireland.  I so enjoyed the processes involved in creating the Calor Stepping Stone garden with Alan Smyth (Landscape Contractor) and Calor my sponsor.  We won a Silver medal for the garden :) and am now planning next year's garden with Alan already!

Many Thanks to all involved and for further information see my page for Calor Stepping Stone garden.
