Mosaic Staircase – San Francisco, USA

At 162 steps, this is purportedly the world’s longest mosaic staircase (but really, how much competition can there be?). The steps were the brainchild of San Franciscan mosaic artist Colette Crutcher and Aileen Barr, a ceramicist who originally hailed from Ireland. Located at 16th Ave. and Moraga, the stairs took two years, 75, 000 fragments of glass and tile, and more than 2,000 handmade tiles to complete.
