Each of the twenty-three steps are 27.5' in width and required nine individual mosaic panels per step.

The design depicts an ocean wave cascading down the steps with sea life interspersed throughout the water.

Mirror was used to catch the sun's reflections and add to the feel and movement of each piece, along with ceramic tile and gems.

 

The mosaic shown here is the final panel with the sun setting, rolling ocean waves, and seagulls flying. A great day at the beach!

A series of six harbor activities along a 190-foot-wall on Harbor Drive. The wall is part of the boatyard at King Harbor Marina.

 

Panels include an outrigger canoe, sailboat, surfer, stand-up paddleboarder, kayaker, and

fisherman (shown). The mosaic is set free-floating within a space 8-feet-high by 10-feet-wide.

The waves show the movement of each activity and are consistant with each design, allowing the viewer to feel the excitement of the ocean!
