Projects

A recent project is an art built in community mosaic project in regional Queensland at Miles State School. The mosaic was designed in consultation with the school community and then created and installed by the students of the school with Grant’s guidance. This mosaic project is a permanent record of the achievements of the staff and students and, through its design, reflects the key aspects of the community.

Bazil Grumble also offers workshops for schools, festivals and community organizations in areas including large wheel throwing, found object sculpture and wood fired sculpture kilns.

Bazil Grumble can tailor its ceramics program including Workshops, Professional Development Programs, Art Built in and Community Designed Mosaic Projects to your needs. Commissions (small or large scale) are welcome.
