Tessellation Street Project
The first shop window was completed by in early 2013 - this design was derived from a floor tile pattern discovered at the New Norcia Hotel, formerly a Benedictine Hostel. All the other designs, completed July 2014, are also inspired by mosaic tile patterns from churches and other buildings around the world.
