I'm in Montreal Canada this week working with Mosaika on the finishing touches to the 3 story mosaic for Sam Houston State University satellite campus in the Woodlands, TX. I'm working to place the handmade tiles Kate and I made in the studio this summer. The tiles are a variety of shapes and textures from frogs, spiders and lily pads to microscopic pollen, seeds and pond life. We are also recycling left over tiles made for Stratawhich was completed in 2009! I'm placing all the textural handmade tiles at hand and eye level so they can be viewed and accessed easily as people move up and down the staircase.
The whole mosaic is looking great and I'm excited to see it installed. The installation date is set for January 2012.
Special thanks to the whole Mosaika team! It would not look as good without your hard work and goods eyes. To see the team in action check out their studio blog. To see the original painting and a rendering of the mosaic click here.
