Unley Mosaic

In late 2003 I was contacted by architect David Holland and asked if I was interested in designing and making a mosaic for the entrance to the Unley Library. The work included a central entrance mosaic with the design extending down wheelchair ramps on either side.

The spiral design symbolises the coming together of many people to create something greater than the sum of its' parts or, put another way, the coming together of people to create a community.

The traditional border design pays homage to the original tiling that was on the floor of the library prior to renovations. 

The spiral is made from high pressure water-jet cut unglazed quarry tiles, with the border made from the same tiles cut with a diamond blade.

The design was started in November 2003 and the work completed by May 2004.
