The Table by the Sea was really my first mosaic (other than a rock!), and this was the project that started my passionate pursuit of this art form. It is 24″ x 72″ and done completely with cut glass tiles. I estimate there to be over 3000 pieces in this table. It was an old professional kitchen work table that my father had given me. It needed a new top and I thought I would tile it, then I thought something with an ocean theme would be nice and there I started. I drew the entire piece myself, created it in sections in my shop and then transported it to the coast. I installed it there with adhesive, completed the edges and used two colors of grout. I completed this in July, 2016.
