‘Knowledge Is Power’ School Mosaic Mural

Knowledge is Power

Knowledge is Power

In April of 2013 I worked with staff and students of Vallejo’s Hogan Middle School during two weeks of Spring Break to put co-create this beautiful and inspiring mosaic mural.

Title:   Hogan School Community Mosaic  Mural

Dimensions: 6 foot x 17 foot

Media: Public mosaic mural using glass, ceramic tile, mirror, stone.  A  group mosaic created by dozens of participants, youth and adults, working in short sessions over a period of  a month.

Content:  The mosaic spells out the school’s motto, Knowledge Is Power, which was chosen as the theme for the mural by the school staff involved in the project.  A large portion of the tesserae (mosaic pieces) used for this piece came from donations from the community.  The design element of shooting stars is to invite students to shine.

Glass Mosaic Art Countertop

sophia and custom glass mosaic countertop

Custom glass mosaic Commission: art countertops for two cabinets in an outdoor kitchen/grill area in Los Gatos.

My clients were celebrating their 20 year anniversary and we got the mosaic done in time for the party.

28 square feet of mosaic made especially to fit this outdoor eating/lounging living space. The theme for the design was to reflect the idea of water and sunshine, to tie in with the creek that runs through this living space, and connect to the vibrant blues of the indoor kitchen which is on the other side of the windows seen here. We included vibrant shades of blue/turquoise, greens, and copper and gold accents to complement the cool colors.

Mosaic Spirit Portrait

A personality and energetic portrait of my friend Koko who passed away recently at age 44

Spirit Portrait Mosaic MuralOne of my closest friends died rather suddenly just before Thanksgiving, her name is Koko. I have been working on a portrait of her rendered in mosaic.  The archetypes and themes i used to represent her personality and her energy come from the Five Elements Model (Traditional Chinese Medicine).  This mosaic mural is being shown at the South Bay Home and Garden Show in Santa Clara, CA,  this weekend.   I will post an in-depth explanation of the design themes and how they relate to the Five Elements Model.  Koko was Metal and Wood Elements, and had a dash of Fire Element.

It is finally finished and I love the colors and scale of this piece.  A fitting tribute to a fabulous soul.  Rest in peace, Koko, and my your spirit continue on many more extraordinary adventures and find much love.

More photos of the process of creating this mosaic art piece.  I had much help from friends and beloveds of Koko.
