Our 20” copper and porcelain mosaic is headed to Hotel Peter & Paul in New Orleans this week, where the mosaic will be imbeded in the pavement at an entryway to the new hotel. We used 1” Cinca porcelain from Portugal cut into quarters, for a classic, Grecian/ Roman mosaic setting style. So the focus was on precision and pattern. Much thanks to Chambers Art and Design for their beautiful metal work making the cropper cross for us!
Check out the process of making our 175 square foot mosaic for Half Moon resort in Jamaica! We created 36 custom fish shaped tiles that swim through the pebble mosaic, leaving subtle swooshes behind them. The pebbles blend from deep ocean colors in the center to bright aqua greens around the perimeter, giving the illusion of a deep pool. We will be traveling to Jamaica in a few weeks for the installation and are super excited for a new mosaic adventure!

Small mosaics are delightful too. I just finished a glass niche mosaic inset for a beautiful home in Oakland. The design centered around the client's signature swoosh, a subconscious doodle she sketches all the time, with Moroccan inspired patterns floating in the near background. This was fun to create in Heidi's subdued grays, creams and whites, a big departure from my typically color saturated infusions. :-)
Dimensions: 18" wide x 15" high
Our most recent mosaic bench was created in honor of a lost loved one for a local family. Love and peaceful thoughts were poured into the design and mosaic work. Piece by piece the project came together through a sense of contemplation as well as joy, beauty and fun. These are not easy projects to make yet very important. We are honored to have been part of this time.

Our enormous mosaic labyrinth was installed at Hal Brown Park this May after months of hard work with the whole team in the studio. Check out the intricate and fast paced process of aligning the 60 huge mosaic sections directly into wet concrete. T.B Penick's stellar crew did a great job on the installation. We're very happy to have made this litho mosaic for Marin County Parks! And super grateful for everyone on the mosaic production team. You can see the completed project HERE
A great group came together in early May to make the center of the LithoMosaic labyrinth we created for Hal Brown Park in Larkspur. About 30 people of all ages participated and were so quick we finished early. Everyone did such a great job! The full labyrinth was installed the next week and came together beautifully. Stay tuned for exciting install pictures on the way :-)
