KEFA - COFFEE FROM ETHIOPIA TO JINGLETOWN
In 2008, I travelled to Oakland California, USA to participate in a mural class at the Institute of Mosaic Art. Over the course of the week and under the tutelage of Laurel True a group of us created a mosaic mural that was installed at a local cafe. This project was a turning point in my mosaic career as I began to create and fall in love with permanent, large scale mosaics and how they could change the look and feel of boring & ordinary structures.
