Spark Update

I am continuing to work with Wowhaus on the series of 4 glass murals that will go around a planetarium at Chabot College in Hayward. After tacking down each mural to fiberglass mesh, we are now ready for the next step! We will be adhering the panels to backer-board which will then be bolted around the building in Hayward. We are working in sections (5′ x 3′) to make installation manageable. Once the panels are in place and secured around the building, we will fill in holes, minimize seams and grout.This is a detail of one of the panels. I still have a few holes to fill but otherwise we are ready to move on!We are also discussing grout colors. We want each glass mural to have multiple colors to create a painterly effect. This allows certain colors pop and others recede where we want.
Here are some of the colors we are experimenting with. These can be bought at most tile stores or Home Depot. We have a lot of work ahead of us but it is exciting to be moving on to a new phase of the project.
