Final Day of Setting Hilltop Park Mosaic

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.

Jamming on New Hilltop Park Mosaic

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!! 

Heaven on Earth - Pueblo Park Community Mosaic Comes Together

Awesome communities are at it again - coming together to create mosaics for their neighborhoods and having fun while they are at it! Rachel Rodi designed and led this project in a sweet little park in San Rafael, CA, surrounded by 50's style houses and reed filled wetlands home to endangered animals, waterbirds, and prolific families of quail. Over 50 people helped create this 100 sq ft mosaic last weekend that is now a jewel of the neighborhood. It was a dreamy, relaxed time with great neighbors, children, dogs, food and fun! To me, this little corner of the world is truly heaven on earth. 

McLaren's Snake Wall On the Way!

We are working on a 400 square foot community mosaic wall that wraps around the pond at McLaren Park in SF. It honors the endangered and beautiful San Francisco garter snake that once thrived at the park. Check out the great progress we made last weekend! And there are two more weekends to go.
The face of the wall is in stained glass and the top will be in ceramic tile. Stay tuned for more to come. If you'd like to jump in and help make the mosaic, sign up via the Doodle Poll HERE. There is still a lot to do!
Project spearheaded and funded by Help McLaren Park.

A blast of color in Richmond!

An awesome new project! We designed and created 32 swirly tendril mosaic insets for 8 bollards for the City of Santee, CA. After making the insets in the studio on mesh, we flew down to install them this week. Much thanks to Amanda Conahan for collaborating with me on the design direction, and a huge thanks to Carol Bevilacqua for flying down with me to install them over 5 long days!! 

Commissioned by TB Penick who did the surrounding hardscape renovation, seeded glass sidewalks and installation of Amanda Conahan's litho-moasic in the intersection.
