The Cultural Gateway to the American West

Our work site is the new water filtration plant of Fort Worth

The mosaic is going on this wall, the entrance to the new facility.

We prepare the wall for installation by taping off the edges and scraping down the wall.

We installed the first three panels in the late afternoon, thinking the shade would help keep the mortar fresh longer but it was still 30 degrees out.

The mortar dries up too fast to continue so we clean the edges well and prepare to install very early tomorrow morning, when it will be cooler out and the wall will have had all night to cool off.

End of day one!
