In an age where technology is continually advancing and state-of-the-art machinery is being used to create innovative tile products, it is refreshing to see that Jane Rohrschneider -- known to many as "Key West Jane" -- is keeping the true craftsmanship of mosaic design alive. The artist recently completed a large hand-made mural, which decorates an exterior wall of Poinciana Royale -- a commercial building in Key West, FL. All of the mosaic tile pieces were cut by hand, pre-assembled and glued onto mesh backing, and then cut into 2- x 2-foot sections for transport at Rohrschneider's home studio.
"They had a contest, so I sent in my 'Call to Artist,' " said Rohrschneider. "I was very honored to be chosen. It was really exciting."
