Making the Montego Bay Mosaic!

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!

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

Pebble Mosaics with Interplay Design

Occasionally I get the opportunity to work with Interplay Design, helping them with mosaics for their custom water play features or other installations. It is always a fun collaboration where I learn new techniques and get inspired by different materials or approaches than I typically use. Interplay's water features can range from very stylized, abstract designs to more natural forms. For the mosaic work on this installation I was instructed to 'be the stream'. Lay out the stones as naturally as possible while creating a smooth-ish surface for the water to be able to flow down. The pebbles were left unsealed to increase the discovery factor for children who will play with this. Wasn't it magical as a child seeing rocks come alive and sparkle with color when they got wet? Here is the work before grouting or installation on site. It left me intrigued with the subtle and soft tones and shapes of pebbles.
