Check out these progress pictures of a cool mosaic collaboration Rachel Rodi did with artists Joan Carson and Nancy Windesheim for Esmeralda Slide Park last fall. Many people who stumbled across the park couldn't find their way so Joan came up with the idea for 'The Locator'. We put our heads together to refine the design. Then Joan worked her butt off to make this project happen! Super happy to have joined forces with these two power houses.
They are being trucked across the country as we speak, on their way to Virginia - Six long seat wall mosaics for the new Norfolk Premium Outlets. The designs tie into Norfolk's unique port and Naval history and tell the story of a beautiful, patriotic city by the Bay. We are flying out in a week to install them alongside the mermaid. Stay tuned for more!
After months of planning, our new lizard sculpture form is finally headed to it's home in Los Angeles. Our whole team will go down and mosaic it in July. The lizard will be suspended from a wall in the center of an oval seating area we designed, and will be the central feature for newly renovated Sylmar Square shopping center. So exciting! Here're a few progress pics of the sculpture form being made by Cemrock.

We are super excited about our new sweetheart of a mermaid - our first one to create ever. Her name is Meredith, which means 'Protector of the Sea', and she will soon look out for all the sailors and sea life of Norfolk, VA. The final project will be 5' wide x 2 1/2' high, all in stained glass. More to come soon!
Here we go! Today is the final push for our latest public mosaic installation. Filling the glorious sun that recognizes donors to the park. We're going to be rained out for our installation this weekend so it's all coming together Monday and Tuesday. Stay tuned! Here're a few more pictures of the work in progress.
We've got an awesome team here today jamming on our almost ready Hilltop Park mosaic project. This is going to be an enormous bench top for the entry of newly renovated Hilltop Park in the Bayview, Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco - 47' long + two 8' end sections. So exciting! More details, info and pictures to come. This is just a sneak peak. We'll be installing next weekend!!
