It’s a Big Ol’ Fossil!

My current mosaic commission is the design of an 8-foot-high, more-than-30-foot-long retaining wall above a pool.

See the top sketch (pinned to my cat’s tower) for the design, including cascading waterfalls I am working with.  See the bottom sketch (wrapped around the cat tower legs) for the color scheme.

Can you see how two ammonite fossils are glimpsed through ‘openings’ in the solid wall?

I‘m using high-fired, frost-proof tile to build the mosaic in my studio:
