Pat George is a self-taught artist, with over 20yrs experience as a Ceramic Artist. She has taught throughout England, working with Harry Frazer, a well known English potter, and his company Potclays in Stoke on Trent and Lambourne Studio in Berkshire. Pat became hooked on mosaics when she first came across the art form in the early 80’s on Waiheke Island, when she helped Verliska Campaign to mosaic the local Kindergarten Garden entrance. Mosaic art has always challenged and inspired her to develop the art form in exciting new ways. She is always looking for different materials to incorporate into her pieces often creating a three dimensional complex designs.
Pat has shared her knowledge of mosaic techniques through teaching for many years, including five years of teaching intellectually disabled clients, at Kaurilands Skills Centre in Tokatoka. She now teaches classes from her home studio “Foxhanger Studio” with her husband Steve George, a mosaic artist in his own right. They share their knowledge through weekly classes, weekend workshops and occasionally hosting international mosaic artists workshops, at their beautiful property Moewaka Villa B&B in Matakohe.
