WHAT WE DO
Rachel Rodi Mosaics designs and creates site-specific mosaic installations for businesses, homes, public art and community projects. We specialize in large-scale installations, architectural mosaics, fine glasswork, and hand-made tile. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, our company creates mosaics for civic organizations, parks, schools, corporations and private clients throughout the United States. We work closely with designers, architects, builders and diverse teams to make mosaics that become integral to a site, and connect with a community or environment through meaningful site-specific aspects. Our materials include ceramic tile, stained glass, mirror and hand made tile, and we are always exploring new and innovative materials and techniques to use in our projects.
We create mosaics on commission, on any scale, from towering murals to small tabletops. Each design is approached as a collaboration, as we work closely with the client or design team every step of the process. Most installations are created in our studio on fiberglass mesh sections, then installed on-site over a period of a few days. This process provides the least impact on the client's space and allows the client to preview the work before it is installed. Great care is taken to ensure the highest technical quality for every project. Our mosaics are both beautiful and long lasting - able to withstand harsh environments and heavy use areas.
If you are interested in commissioning a mosaic or discussing your project, contact us here. We'd be happy to talk with you!
