Viking Ship. My first inlay mosaic. This mosaic pushed me to charter new territory. It was made on the diamond as can be seen with the ocean I wanted to create depth, so as you can see.. The client was emphatic about using a rare quartzite from brazil called Azul Macaubus (which only comes in slab thick sheets, so required a whole process of shaving down). Additionally used Nero Marquina for the borders, Emperor Gold, Verde Butterfly granite, and Creamy White marble for the sail.
