Larger Projects

From small beginnings, we have been lucky enough to be engaged for several larger projects, grants and commissions.
Take a look at some of our larger works around town below.


Peace Mural

Commissioned by the local RSL Club this memorial has been dedicated to all Australian Peacekeepers who have served on deployment around the world, since 1947.

It was inspired by a well-known image of then-1RAR Private Jason Putland helping a Somalian boy at a food drop during Operation Solace, in 1993, and was unveiled on Anzac Day 2024.


Bird Gallery

A grant from FRRR (Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal) secured by our local Landcare group helped this long-term Crackpot vision, of a space to 'sit and contemplate' on the Ovens River Trail, come to fruition.

With community input into which birds were depicted, a collaboration with artist Sarah Allen evolved, which
saw us interpret her illustrative designs in mosaic. Fifteen true to life size species, including some male and females of the same species, adorn the concrete slab pillars part way along the walk.


For A Better Life

A tribute to the many migrants - who came here searching for a better life and made Myrtleford and surrounds their home - this project was made possible with proceeds from the sale of the book: 'For A Better Life: The Story of Italian Migration to the Myrtleford District'.

With artwork developed by U3A member Kerry Hanson, there are five mosaic travellers on the length of the wall in the Myrtleford Piazza complimented by a wrought iron sculpture by local artist Simon Pankhurst.


A Big

Commissioned by the local golf club, this 1.5 metre diameter work recreated their club logo to celebrate 100 years of golf at Myrtleford.


Tree Of Harmony And Friendship

Employed as Creative Workers in School (CWS) at Myrtleford P-12, we worked with the junior students, and their amazing art teacher, Mrs Kit Cartwright. Sharing our mosaic passion and skills with the younger generation, we worked collaboratively to create this amazing piece of art, which now graces the front of the school.

Each student contributed a their own leaf, and a handmade clay tile with their name to the tree trunk. The CWS program was delivered by Regional Arts Victoria through the support of the Victorian Governmentโ€™s Working for Victoria (WFV) initiative and in partnership with the Department of Education and Training (DET) and Creative Victoria.

2020 - 2021, BIG TREE

From Little Things, Big Things Grow

With the theme โ€œLove The Lifeโ€ this large river red gum tree, was one of our most challenging works to date. After wide consultation, 41 images of what our community loves about our town and surrounds, were embedded in the design. Local children and fellow mosaic makers assisted with leaf making and some of the images.

The project was supported by the Australian and Victorian Governments, through Creative Victoria and Regional Arts Victoria, along with the Alpine Shire, Myrtleford Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Rinlatech Engineering.

Let's Play

This, our first large work, is sure to bring back childhood memories, and we hope make lots of new ones for folks.

It kept us out of mischief during COVID19, and was made possible with a grant from the 'Into Our Hands Foundation' and the support of Myrtleford Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Alpine Shire.
