As a major American proponent of the philosophy and practices of the movement, Mercer joined other craftsmen in countering the sterile uniformity so characteristic of mass production processes of the time. By 1903 Mercer had perfected his craft, gained national attention, and been awarded his largest commission - supplying 400 mosaics and 16,000 square feet of paving tile for the Pennsylvania State Capitol floor in Harrisburg.
