Onehunga firing up over Community Centre mosaic

Onehunga firing up over Community Centre mosaic mural

The kilns are firing up in readiness for the final stage of production of the Onehunga Community Centre’s mosaic mural.

The firing of the 35 sq m tile mosaic (made up of 7500 tiles), which will decorate the community centre’s wall by the end of June, will get underway next week.

Rhonda Jameson, the artist who won the concept design, has been working collaboratively with tile artist Tom Barter, ARTPAD (local members based artists’ collective), and Auckland Studio Potters to produce a masterpiece like Onehunga has never seen before.

Ms Jameson says: “I have put my heart and soul into this piece. It’s the most exciting project I have ever done. I also feel privileged to have been involved in such an undertaking and to have worked with other ceramic artists who have made my design come to life.

“The theme of the design reflects the spirit and cultural resonance of Onehunga. It has been designed to clearly integrate into the Onehunga Library and Community Centre development”, Ms Jameson says.

A celebration to unveil the masterpiece will be held once the installation date of the mural is confirmed.
