Two of these friends recently collaborated to produce Unfurled, a public mosaic installation in Charlotte, NC. Lin Schorr of Lin Schorr Mixed Media Mosaics meticulously designed this beautiful mosaic, and artist Pamela Goode, a founding partner of Ciel Gallery and Mosaic Studio in Charlotte, NC served as Project Manager.
All year, it was exciting to watch as various participants posted photos of their work on Facebook and Flickr. As the artists finished, and then sent in their pieces to Pamela in Charlotte, each of the three flowers began to take shape in Ciel’s studio, as we were given sneak peeks at the progress online.
There was quite a bit of work involved once these pieces arrived in Charlotte. They were each adhered to a substrate that had been cut in the shape of Lin’s original design, and then fortified with a metal frame. Next, each flower section had to be grouted. Finally, it was installed in its final showcase, the exterior wall of Ciel Gallery, which is located in Charlotte’s hip and coming arts district.
I am grateful to them both for asking me to be a part of this, and congratulate them for once again landing a coveted spot in this highly competitive exhibition.
Thanks for stopping by,
