Gaudi Lighthouse on Oregon Coast

Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi is famous for his unique architecture that helps to make Barcelona one of the most beautiful cities in the world. http://www.barcelona-tourist-guide.com/en/gaudi/barcelona-gaudi.html
After teaching a mosaic class in Gaudi this summer, I was commissioned to create a large mosaic that would combine Gaudi and the Oregon Coast. I imagined Gaudi building a lighthouse on the bluffs at Cascade Head, and I used glass, stone, and tiny Millefiori to show this. It was a joy to work with a borrowed hand of a master.
Fortunately, the piece did not take 101 years to finish, like the Sagrada Familia Church !
