Making the Montego Bay Mosaic!

Dog_Helps_Make_Mosaic_Rodi_Fuerte.jpg

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!

Designed by Guy Fuerte and Rachel Rodi. Mosaic production by Guy Fuerte, Rachel Rodi, Sophia Othman, Angelina Duckett, Carol Bevilacqua and Kim Payne.

Heidi's Glass Mosaic Niche

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

Labyrinth LithoMoasic Installation In Action!

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

Making the Labyrinth Center

Labyrinth Community Day (3).jpg

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 :-)  

Ocean and Pier Murals Grand Reveal Celebration

Check out these pics and a quick video of the great Skechers Ocean and Pier Murals reveal celebration that took place last month. A large group gathered on April 11 to see the curtains drawn and celebrate the Skechers Manhattan Beach flagship store re-opening after months of work remodeling the store and creating the murals.

The two mosaics took over 2000 hours to create from design to installation. An incredible team of 14 artists assisted Rachel with mosaic production who worked tirelessly to complete the murals. We are very proud to have created these mosaic murals for Skechers!

Skechers Ocean Mural Installation Adventure

In the spirit of catching up, wanted to share our installation adventures with the awesome Skechers store mosaic mural from last week. After shipping the 50+ mosaic sections down, the install team flew to Manhattan Beach and put up the mural without a hitch. Lots of love, blood, and sweat went into this mural (no tears). We are proud and excited to have it up. Grand opening and mural reveal pics coming soon!
