Reality's Illusion is seven mosaic panels installed in the interior of a school in Bremerton, Washington, near Seattle. The project was part of Washington State’s Percentage for the Arts program.
Commissioned for John D. "Bud" Hawk Elementary School at Jackson Park, Reality's Illusion features seven 47 inches x 47 inches mosaic panels crafted from glass and hand glazed tile, along with hand formed cast glass and ceramic pieces. The panels were designed with the microscopic ecosystems of the Olympia Peninsula in mind. Rich in texture and smoothness, each panel includes hidden elements, unique shapes, and images to be discovered by students and adults alike.
