Joe, an active contributor on Dave Carrs Tiling Forum, commented: I am absolutely delighted to have won! I worked on this mosaic for four nights after work and didnt realise mosaic work was so pleasurable. Thank you Mapei for giving us the opportunity to participate in this competition.
Mark Louch, Managing Director at Mapei UK, said: Congratulations to Joe. The competition has been a fantastic opportunity to get tilers using Mapei products in a fun way. We look forward to housing the winning mosaic in our UK head office showroom.
