                                                               Chip and Clada Mosaics   

             We both enjoy mosaic art.  Chip prefers to use a wet band saw and grinder; while Clada prefers to handcut the pieces.

  This was our first effort.  Chip didn't have a wet band saw so he used a tile grinder and sander (materials:  travertine and marble).

                       This was our second attempt...we were very pleased with the results.  Pelicans routinely fly by this patio.

                               As each pelican gets larger, there is more detail in the wings (materials:  travertine, marble, granite, and slate)

                                 The third pelican Chip made was out of scale, so we installed it on a cabinet in the apartment laundry room. 

                                  The Seahorse was made during a class at the Miami Mosaic Academy (materials:  stained glass).

                                                                                                 Clada made some signs for this gate.
