The Lion fish mosaic was commissioned by an avid diver who wanted to incorporate a beautiful image she caught while diving into her new home around the pool area.

Customer wanted a very plain background so as not to detract from the beautiful mosaic fish and it’s gorgeous markings. To add interest, I cut the tiles down to blocks and laid them in a wavy pattern to convey movement.

The fish itself was so much fun to create but very tedious. The black and white sections were all cut out in paper & traced onto ceramic tiles to achieve the accuracy needed. Most of the fish pieces were created with the help of a wetsaw and grinders.
