Terrazzo samples

Here are some of the terrazzo samples for the arena project. These three are my proposals for the water areas. They have some bits of mother of pearl and mirror to give it a reflective sparkly surface evocative of water. I've had to ask for some redos of some of the other colors because I wasn't happy with the aggregate mix I had selected. As you can imagine, it really affects the overall color. The redos look great, however!

I've been out of town in Florida visiting family, but I'm back and just an hour ago laid the final piece in the pig (see below). He's a happy guy, and I think I'll name him Elmer. Apologies to my Uncle Elmer, who at one time was, in fact, a pig farmer...

Hope you all had a merry Christmas!
