Mosaic is the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials. In my case colorful beer caps.
About a decade ago I got the idea to repurpose an old square end table with a mosaic design of beer caps. I glued them to the top of the table and poured clear seal over them.
It has some flaws but it is always a good conversation starter when people enter our front foyer and see it on their right.
Here is the picture of my table standing on it’s edge. The table measures approximately 24″ by 24″ and has just under 375 caps glued on it. It was a project that taught me a few things.
This mosaic table does not accurately represent my taste in beers today. Its design was based on cap colors I had available not favorites brews. I am quite certain I would reject a Bud Light Lime under any circumstance today but I liked their lime green color for the table. The mosaic gets people talking about beer but it does not represent my favorite beers. Mosaics are like that where one piece cannot define the entirety.
There are evaluation tools out there that can help someone sort out their personality mosaic. Sometimes that is helpful in screening potential employees or team members. Sometimes it can suggest to a person suitable careers they may be compatible with. One of the most common is the Holland Code.
The Holland Code is a three-letter code that is made up of an individual’s three dominant personality types out of six possible choices.
Everybody is a collection of different traits that I believe can be refined and changed over time. Evaluation tools are a place to start if you are trying to figure out a career path. Just like my beer cap table they can serve as a conversation starter for what’s next in your life not for what you like or do best.
