Amber's Artistry

Amber J. Pierce


Meet The Artist

Last year I was invited to join 20 other mosaic artists to create a design and make it into a mosaic celebrating MAPEI's "World of MAPEI" campaign.  MAPEI is a worldwide company which specializes in concrete solutions and they are a green company striving for serious solutions in building.  I use many of their products already, but was pleased to participate in this event and receive some of their new, cutting edge materials.

My design is a depiction of a tree with handmade stoneware leaves that are stamped with various business tenets such as Community, Reuse, Recycle, Innovation...etc. The 3 dimensional tree stands tall in front of a 3 dimensional world and has a night sky with shining stars.  The tree splits the globe into "lungs" as a powerful statement that we need green companies to continue to influence industry so our planet can keep "breathing".
Here's a photo or two from MAPEI's booth in the international SURFACES convention and show.  From there, our mosaic work will travel to several places, eventually resting in the Italian Headquarters of MAPEI.  Some of my friends who were also part of the mosaic invitational were able to attend the SURFACES showing.  They are pictured and just above their heads is my MAPEI Tree.
