I promise that this is the last of my posts about my weekend in Philadelphia. I wanted to share some of the photos of Isaiah's own work. As you walk around South Philadelphia you will find mosaics all along South Street and the surrounding neighborhoods. It's a really special neighborhood.
This is a building that was probably done in one of his workshops.
This is part of the back of his workshop and the original building that he decorated. You can't miss the back alleys because there are lots of surprises like this around too!
This is more of the back of the same building. Every surface on the inside is covered in mosaics too.
About 5 years ago he bought a very large warehouse a mile or so away from his main workshop. This is where we met on the second day for our lesson in mixing grout (concrete). I loved this light fixture in the building. This building is HUGE and has 2 stories. In this area on the 1st floor he build these walls in the middle of the floor and covered the walls and floors.
This is upstairs. The space is cavernous and he has covered the walls and ceiling. Those panels are about 5' tall and there are loads of them. He sells those individually.
I'm sure that this wall will be done soon!
This was at the end of the second day and I'm covered in concrete dust but this will give you an idea of the scale of the place.
This is a downstairs wall.
He's even doing the windows!
It was a memorable and inspiring weekend. Hopefully I'll be back next weekend with some of my own glass.
