We had a floor that was bare plywood. Money was at a premium, when is it not?
We had tons of sample tiles from tile stores, but not enough to tile a floor. What to do?
Being artists, we did what an artist would do. We tiled the 16′ x 20′ floor one day with broken sample tiles.
It took one day to lay the tile, and one day to grout. We chose mostly natural colors, with a few colorful tiles in between.
The tiles were free, we had to buy the thinset mortar. For under $100 and a couple days of intense work, we had a masterpiece.
You don’t have to be rich to look like you can afford a work of art on your floor!
This was the first project I did with mosaics. It was not long before I was doing large scale public installations.
Everything has a beginning.
