Laticrete, a global manufacturer and leader of premium installation and finishing systems for the building industry, donated a considerable amount of Laticrete SpectraLOCK pro Premium Grout to The Empty Bowls, a charitable fundraiser based in Houston, Texas, which every year endeavors to sell handmade mosaic bowls donated by local artists in an effort to raise money for the Houston Food Bank. The Food Bank, in turn, provides three nutritious meals daily for 50,000 needy people living in the Greater Houston Area.
According to mosaicist, Sharon Plummer, owner of Plum Art Mosaics, “Thanks to the help and generosity of Laticrete, Houston-area mosaic artists were able to create and sell over 1200 bowls. And in doing so, were able to raise almost $50,000 for this worthy cause!”
The bowls were made and donated by MOSAICO, The Society of Houston Mosaic Artists, which is coordinated by Plummer, who has relied upon products from LATICRETE for fabricating and grouting her mosaic art for many years. “I was delighted to learn that for the second straight year, Laticrete SpectraLOCK pro Premium Grout would be donated to our organization for the beautiful bowls created by Houston mosaicists,” she commented. “All of these artists donate their time, effort and resources in making these bowls, so the generous donation from LATICRETE helped all of us to cut down on our own personal expenses while helping to do our part for the Houston Food Bank.
