Mosaics at Niaulani: Series 1

About This Exhibit

The artists in the Community Mosaic Project appreciate the guidance of Ted Thomas, expert tile setter, whose ability to teach all five artists traditional Mosaic methods, tile setting and large art piece installations has been invaluable.

All community members, students from Volcano School of Arts and Sciences, and featured artists of the Community Mosaic Project also wish to thank ceramic artist Erik Wold who guided all of our artists in the creation and glazing of custom tiles and ceramic pieces.

The Community Mosaic Project was financially supported by The County of Hawaii’s Department of Research and Development.
