Object: farm theme Commission
Tessarae with Medium Grey Grout on Framed Birch Plywood
51-7/8" & 24-3/16" x 24" (
3 panels roughly totaling 17.5 feet )
and Indirect (using clear tile tape)
Notes: Chicken sandwiches are one of the many items
served to the students from this station. The mosaic design
started with a scenic representation: dairy cows, a red barn,
silos and ready-to-harvest crops in the field. Shepherding
this design through the approval process resulted in a fresh
take on the theme; an abstract concept with some of the original
key elements driving the color and pattern choices.
Notes: This commission entailed the
design and execution of four themes to identify the various
food stations at Lecanto High School cafeteria in Florida.
It was an impressive remodeling project with longevity
in mind: from mechanisms which can switch from hot to cold
for evolving menus to access panels & wiring
designed for easy maintenance. While all this planning
was going into "function", "form" was by no means forgotten.
Providing an inviting place to eat was certainly a big
part of the mix.
of permanent traditional signage, there are themed decorative
mosaic panels running the length of the counters. The look
of each of the four stations informs you of the type of
food being served, leaving the exact menus flexible.
I congratulate the vision of
the Citrus County School Board. All of the
students and faculty of Lecanto High School will be
able to benefit from this investment in their school for years
to come. I was pround to be a part of this project.
