The location of the artwork within a light well in this new residence drove the design of the linear mosaic. The concept was to create what would be the view if one were able to look through the wall to the outdoor setting. While mostly abstract, I worked from photos of the surrounding forest and included Douglas Fir, Oak and Old Growth Redwood. Interspersed throughout the design are ceramic tiles created from leaves from the site, which were pressed into wet clay and set within the overall mosaic.
