Anyone hearing the theme song from "Jaws"?
This fun project was a commission for a friend of a friend - actually it is intended to be a gift for the son of that friend, who lives in Jamaica and who apparently loves all things about the Great White Shark. I got to use some tiles that I really love from an online shop whose name I love too - Kismet Mosaics: The tiles are made in Turkey from recycled glass in beautiful iridescent colors that I thought perfectly captured the silky white and silver coloring of the Great White. If you look closely you can see a little beady eye that is a small black bead cut in half. The 8-by-18 board has several layers of spray sealer on both sides to protect it from the elements.
I kinda think it needs an escort to Jamaica to be sure it's installed properly, don't you?
