World-Class Waterjet Designed Mural To Be Donated To Convention Center At Coverings 2008

Updated:2008-04-02 08:58:04

In a combined effort between waterjet impresario Creative Edge, the Coverings trade exposition and advertising/pr agency, Communicators International, Inc., guests at Coverings 2008 will be greeted with a remarkable waterjet cut mural designed by Harri Aalto, co-owner and waterjet artist of Creative Edge Mastershop, Inc.

Utilizing a unique fusion of bright and bold colors with varying textures, this tropical Florida-inspired mural was created using precision waterjet-cut porcelain and glass tile products, held together with superior installation system materials from LATICRETE International, Inc. The bulk of the tile material used for this expansive mural was high-quality, solid-color porcelain from GranitiFiandre. Glass products by Color Mirage?, a decorative glass product line recently introduced to the market by the Applied Coatings Group (ACG), were selected by Aalto to create the look of water.

"I've worked with GranitiFiandre products many times and I enjoy the firm's lively color palette,"said Aalto. "I also chose glass tile material from Color Mirage for a shimmering water effect. And of course, we are big believers in the performance of the LATICRETE system to install and grout these materials."

Thousands of precision-cut, beautifully colored pieces make up the waterjet artistry that will be permanently mounted outside of the new Orange County Convention Center at the South entryway —a prominent location that is visible from International Drive. All Coverings attendees are welcome to be present at the unveiling of the mural on Tuesday, April 29, 2008, the first day of the show, at 11:00a.m.

"The Orange County Convention Center is honored to permanently display this work of beautiful artistry and skillful talent,"said Kathie Canning, deputy general manager. "We are excited to have the Coverings trade expo back again at the Center this year, and the unveiling event will be a terrific way to kick-off the show."

"Coverings is, without question, the best trade exposition relative to tile and stone in the entire world," stated Ron Treister, president of Communicators International. "Creative Edge wrote the book on waterjet design using those materials. And the Orange County Convention Center is a world-class venue for any trade show. Therefore, it's only fitting that a stunning Creative Edge designed mural should be permanent fixture at that location."

"For the second year in a row, Creative Edge has designed an eye-catching waterjet mural for Coverings, and we are pleased to present such an impressive display of artistry by one of the show's exhibitors to the Orange County Convention Center," said Glenn Feder, president, client events at National Trade Productions.
