WHAT WE DO
Rachel Rodi Mosaics designs and creates site-specific mosaic installations for businesses, homes, public spaces and community projects. We specialize in large-scale installations, architectural mosaics and sculpture in a wide range of materials. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, our company has created mosaics for civic organizations, corporations, parks, schools, and private clients throughout the United States and abroad. We work closely with designers, architects, builders and diverse teams to design projects that become integral to a site, and connect with a community or environment through meaningful site-specific aspects.
We create mosaics on commission, on any scale, from towering murals to small tabletops. Most installations are built 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!
