L'installation de Mariam

On June 22, 2014, Finally, after a little more than 50 hours on the bench, Mariam was ready to fly to her new home in Normandy...

Delta Airlines charged me $200.00 for this extra piece of luggage and Mariam and I boarded the plane.

We arrived in France on Wednesday, June 25th. On Friday, I went to Londinieres, home of Alain and Marie Jacquot who had commissioned this piece.

Suspense ! 

Marie opens the box ! 

Marie and Alain discover Mariam for the first time !

And share it with their daughters.

Mariam was fitted with my special V-shaped installation system, and it took Alain and I less than 1/2 an hour to install her. 

Mariam is installed on a deck used for  "L'apero" and outside dinners. She was officially inaugurated on Saturday June 29, at a wonderful party organized by the hosts to celebrate their 60th birthdays.

A few days later, Marie sent me a picture of Mariam in the Sunset.

As you can see, the color of some of the tesserae matches the background color of the wall. This is a very interesting effect that makes this piece even more attractive. It is not always possible to  do this, for tiles do not come with infinite variety of colors, but it worked for Mariam..

Miriam, Mariam's twin sister, is now available.
