The Currie family lost their home in the devastating Cedar Fire of 2003. The mosaic was created with shards of pottery and glass recovered from what was left of their home. Since the fire, the family has relocated to La Jolla where they have a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. The design is representative of tide pools and with their constant ebb and flow, the regeneration of life. This mosaic with its bits and pieces from their past is meant to convey that even with tragedy life goes on.
