I’ve been in Panama for the past week and a half visiting family. Part vacation, part family reunion of sorts. It’s a yearly destination for our family to visit. We are staying in the mountains, in an area called Altos del Maria. It’s really an amazing place. One thing you see in a lot of the architecture are stone work and tiles. Since the temperature uear-round is fairly mild/warm, a lot of the architecture is open. Windows rarely ever shut, indoor spaces are often mixed with outdoor spaces. It’s a ton of fun 🙂
My grandfather is always building. He repurposed an old satellite dish, flipped it upsidedown and filled it with cement and plastered it to a post and now it’s a table. He asked me to design a mosaic for the top of it. I was only supposed to do the design but once I saw all of the tiles I really wanted to take charge of the project.
Here’s what it looks like so far!
