Adventures in mosaics! In addition to working on launching Artistic Home Studio and Boutique, I'd been working on creating two mosaic tree murals for Lincoln Elementary School in Burlingame, CA. The school wanted to dress up two drab exterior walls on either sides of their multi-purpose room doors. In the fall, they began a fundraising campaign, selling tile leaves and flowers which were then personalized with a student or family name. After I glazed and fired the tiles (over 200), I began the mosaic project.
First thing first: smash LOTS of wine and beer bottles! I thought it'd be cool to incorporate pieces in the trunk and branches.
