Pelicans Sunset Mosaic – Kitchen Backsplash

Pelicans and sunset mosaic for a home set on the San Pablo Bay

This glass mosaic commission was fun to make. The glass tile colors are a joy to work with.  The client’s home is built on stilts directly on the water just where the Napa River joins to top of the San Pablo Bay.  Pelicans are regular flyers in this area so the mosaic was a way for the client to bring the beauty of these creatures in the heart of the home, the kitchen.

The pelican glass mosaic backsplash installed with tile trim.  The client installed the panel and added tile trim border around it framing it perfectly.

We had fun with the installed mosaic photo shoot.  I am an avid birdwatcher so it was a delight to create the pelican mosaic for this client.
