Our mosaic & sculpture art studio is located in the San Francisco Bay Area – we offer custom architectural mosaics and sculpture for public, private, and commercial spaces. We facilitate community mosaic art projects, school mosaic projects, and other group live art events.
We work in collaboration with our clients to design and fabricate custom mosaic and sculpture. We aim to realize our clients’ vision for the space in which the mosaic will be installed and the audience of the mosaic or sculpture.
We design and fabricate large scale mosaic for interior and exterior environments. We work with a wide range of mosaic tile – glass, pebbles, ceramic tile, handmade ceramic tile. We design and fabricate concrete sculpture. Standard professional tile industry practices are observed in the production and installation of architectural mosaics.
Local & Global
Modern production techniques allow for large scale mosaics to be fabricated in our studio and the pieced sections to be transported for installation anywhere in the world. SF Bay Area California based projects can be installed on site by our team over a few days. For out of state and international projects, mosaic sections can be shipped to be installed by local tile setters.
Options for concrete sculpture include poured casts, hand built ferrocement (concrete over expanded metal lathe or metal grid layered on a metal armature), or over fiberglass mesh layered on a styrofoam core GFRC. Concrete sculpture can be finished with painting, concrete stains, polishing, and mosaic.
