Laddie creates wall pieces using cement in contrast with the smooth surface of glass. Using natural pigments he incorporates, in his work, a wide range of colors from brick reds derived, from iron oxide, coal blacks from black sulphur, yellows and naturally mined cobalt blues. Combinations of these natural pigments create a variety of brilliant but still "organic" colors.
