"Growing Through Learning"
A Glass Tile Mosaic Entranceway for Noble Elementary
Noble Elementary School in Cleveland Heights Ohio recently moved its main entrance to a location closer to the school office.  For security reasons many older schools are making similar moves.  Principal Julie Beers wanted to create a welcoming atmosphere in the new entrance and asked me to work with students and staff on a glass tile mosaic installation.  Mosaics can be made from a variety of materials including stone, ceramic and glass among others.  We chose glass tesserae because of their refractory nature, allowing the material to subtly change color throughout the day as the sun moves through the sky.  This gives a sparkle to the project and reflects light and color throughout the area.
The design of the mosaic also visually directs visitors to the school office where they can sign in, register new students or meet with teachers or staff.  Our imagery was chosen to delight elementary students and brighten the start of their school day.
