Incredible Mosaic Chandelier

Since yesterday's blog post was about a mosaic, I felt like sticking to a theme for today.
Paul Pearman is an incredible mosaic artist based in the United States. He frequently uses the tiniest of mosaic tiles for his projects that can range in size from extremely small to extremely monumental. An incredible masterpiece recently created by Pearman is a sculpted chandelier, displayed in the lobby at Georgia Health Sciences University's new College of Dental Medicine.
Taking nine months to build and an incredible team, this masterpiece was documented by two film documentaries chronicling the entire process.

The final masterpiece suspended in the lobby. The sculpture is almost 9 meters tall from top to bottom with its lowest point less than 3 meters from the floor.

At the lowest level of the multi-tiered sculpture is a teardrop pendant containing a clock.

Pearman's inspiration for this work? The famous Salvador Dali painting, Geopoliticus Child Watching the Birth of a New Man. This project used LATICRETE materials. According to Pearman, he was adamant in his decision to only use installation materials produced by LATICRETE. Pearman mentioned that he used LATICRETE SpectraLOCK PRO Grout as both the adhesive and the grout, which is very uncommon, unless the project is unique and requires this specific method.
