"It was one of my first times working with thinset. The focus was on the importance of borders. I focused on learning how to use the pieces to form specific borders. I wanted to use the large centerpiece with the idea to create something one could put things inside and add focus on the center piece so someone would want to use it as functional art. It was a unique experience using a larger piece inside the art." - Artist Vicki
