Kennedy Mosaic Commission

We are pleased to announce that we have been commissioned to re-create the Kennedy Memorial that was once sited in St Chads concourse, Birmingham City Centre.

The original was demolished 5 years ago when St Chads was re-developed.  With the help of the Irish Assembly in Birmingham, Birmingham City Council and the property developers Ballymore we are now at the stage of beginning the reconstruction of this work.  The original drawings have been conserved and the Smalti mosaic material we will be using has been ordered from the famous Venetian mosaic company of Angelo Orsoni.

We will keep you updated of this works progress over the coming months.
