Object: Italy theme            Commission

Materials: Glass Tessarae with Medium Grey Grout on Framed Maple Plywood

Dimensions: 6.5 x 2 foot panel

Method: Direct and Indirect (using clear tile tape)

Design Notes:  As part of cost saving, the Italian design created for the Lecanto High School Project was repurposed for Crystal River. The counter size changed from 16 feet to 6.5. Something had to change. By enlarging the red tiled duomo to balance out the presence of the Colosseum a new composition was possible while including almost all the elements of the original design.

Commission Notes:  This commission entailed the design and execution of five themes to identify the various food stations at the Crystal River High School cafeteria in Florida. It was an impressive remodeling project with longevity in mind. While much planning went into "function", "form" was by no means forgotten. Providing an inviting place to eat was certainly a big part of the mix.

Instead of permanent traditional signage, there are themed decorative mosaic panels running the length of the counters. The look of each of the stations informs you of the type of food being served, leaving the exact menus flexible.

I congratulate the vision of the Citrus County School Board. All of the students and faculty of Crystal River High School will be able to benefit from this investment in their school for years to come. I was proud to be a part of this project.
