• Short Summary

    Artists George and Doreen Dereford work on Aztec mosaic sculptures at their home in Marlow.

  • Description

    Marlow, Buckinghamshire.

    Various shots show artists George and Doreen Dereford at work on an Aztec mosaic sculpture. George cements pieces of the base of the mural together, then carefully puts the small coloured squares in place. A different surface is covered with glue, a mosaic section is laid on top and hammered into position.

    Several shots of finished mosaic figures - very striking and colourful. We also see a mosaic of a Royal Coat of Arms, commissioned for the British Embassy in Tel Aviv.

    Note: on file is a letter from George and Doreen and a news cutting about their work.

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
