With several hands, many hours, and over 10,000 individually cut, hand-laid pieces of glass, the first installation of Tieton Mosaic’s Vintage project emerged as a 9 foot by 8 foot large mosaic mural highlighting the “Tieton T” fruit label, easily the most visually attractive mosaic made yet. With bold blues, yellows, reds, and greens, it's simple design so easily enhances the beauty of mosaic work while demonstrating the trade’s remarkable skill set. Pairing mosaic work like this that has long been admired in New York City subways with well-loved and recognized local vintage fruit labels, Vintage is an endeavour to be celebrated in and beyond the community in Tieton.
Which favorite fruit label do you want to see in mosaic form? Tieton Mosaic is experimenting with glass fusing so be on the lookout for something new in the next 6 mosaics, to be finished by the end of 2018. A project that pushes the boundaries of mosaic making and honors the local fruit history, Vintage alone makes it worth a trip to Tieton!
