|Tessa Hunkin - Design for Lyric Theatre Mosaic Commission|
We are rather proud in Carmarthen to be able to boast a new mosaic commissioned from artist, Tessa Hunkin outside The Lyric Theatre in King Street. It was installed last week by Tessa and her assistant. Oriel Myrddin Gallery Manager, Meg Anthony organised the call for submissions and steered the selection of the design. Tessa has a long history of working to public commission including a piece designed by Welsh artist, Ivor Davies which was installed in Westminster Cathedral last year to coincide with the Pope’s visit to the UK.
It is a beautiful piece of work, and exceptionally well crafted in muted colours and gold with roundels of significant local themes.
