Mosaic Restoration Work

I had the good fortune of getting some recent work from a client, he had found this table his mother had created in the 1960's. It needed much attention and repair, but was so fun to do and be a part of the tables on going history. See before and after pics. I love to work on restoring mosaics you may have that need to be re-done, re-grouted, tile added and or cleaned.
Send me an email and we can discuss project.

Texas Chair Project at Ohio Craft Museum

My mini mosaic chair is traveling to Ohio with the Texas Chair Project and has a brief mention in paper.

Quoted from the Columbus Dispatch, full article link below.

Picture/Chair shown "Monologue by Stephen Daly

"For "The Texas Chair Project," Damian Priour sent miniature plaster chairs to dozens of fellow Texas artists with a request to return the favor and a rule that the artists reuse his 8-inch-cubed shipping box.

Eighty responded. Some delivered charming works that are little but otherwise functional - such as Holli Brown's sturdy tiled mosaic throne, Continuum; and William Canning's Small Comfort, in which coated steel creates a remarkable simulation of inflatable plastic.

Artists such as David Deming, placing a rickety chair on the back of a painted steel dog, exploited the small size by throwing practicality to the wind. Spikes or other damaging accessories formed elements of chairs by Sharon Kopriva; Eric McGehearty; and David Hesser, creator of the gorgeously dangerous Attack Chair."

Function takes back seat to frivolity in groupings of chairs at Ohio Craft Museum
