The Blue Hawk Mascot – Mosaic

The mascot of Norwood School’s athletic programs is the Blue hawk.  In 2010, the Head of school commissioned me to create a logo of its mascot and I successfully did.  It is now proudly displayed on the floor of the Ruth Rales Athletic Center in the middle school.


Last year, I was commissioned to create a large mosaic of the Blue hawk mascot with the colors of the school -Blue and White- by the main entrance of the athletic center.    I began by creating the head of the Blue hawk with white earthenware and, just in case one would break in the process of drying, firing, glazing or re-firing, I made two of the same.

And so, I began the meticulous creation of the Blue hawk mascot mosaic at Norwood School in 2014.
