MOSAIC WORKS

THE MISSION

11"x13" A picture of my house and my neighbors homes. Installed in a hallway niche.
Most of these tiles were given to me by another Sarah, Chinese porcelain for the sky and bird, and
French Le Moges for the street. The Mission was inspired by a drawing done by
Arizona environmental artist Heather Green of her own house. 1999

The Great White area is Canada. The U.S. is made with Irish handmade tile given to me by my friend Donna W.
The longitudinal lines run through water and stop at land. It bears close examination.
North is noted with a hand painted tile by Bay Area artist Sherie Olson. 2000
