Alexandrina Mosaics 2003

In 2003 I was contacted by Architect Pippa Morgan and offered the job of designing a mosaic for the forecourt of the Alexandrina Library, which was undergoing a significant redevelopment at the time.

The pavement mosaic depicts features of the Alexandrina Council area, such as the ocean, the river, vineyards, and sand dunes. The words 'Alexandrina Council' line up with the negative joint created between the new building work and the original stone building

The pavement mosaic is made from hand-cut, vitrified porcelain tiles and high pressure water-jet cut quarry tiles. The design for the pavement mosaic began in September 2003 and the work was completed in July 2004.

On the wall of the forecourt is a mosaic depicting a pelican flying over the South Lakes and Coorong. The wall mosaic is made from hand-cut, glazed ceramic floor tiles. This mosaic was made for an exhibition in 2001 and was purchased by the Alexandrina Council in 2003.
