Development of “The Cricklade Jubilee Mosaic”

 Working with Debbie Stirling, a local artist from Cirencester, who was appointed by Cricklade Town council to design and Build the mosaic, the Cricklade Art Group were invited to submit designs. Ann Jelly, from the Cricklade Art Group designed the fritillaries incorporated in the mosaic, following a conversation with Anita Barratt from Cricklade Bloomers. Ann incorporated a bee into the design as they are essential for the survival of the flowers. The design incorporates the town motto – “In loco delicioso” (In a delightful place”) – and crest surrounded by fritillaries, for which Cricklade is famous, together with an element of Saxon artwork in the border, which was designed by Ed Muir, also a Cricklade Art Group member.

The mosaic, is made of coloured tiles and glass and is 12ft (3.7m) across which cost about £8,000 and has been paid for out of the budget for the community garden.
