Moonfish Artworks and Sophia Othman offer opulent contemporary mosaic design and fabrications that can be applied to almost any surface.
Contemporary mosaic materials are astoundingly beautiful and include ceramic tile, colored (stained) glass, handmade ceramics custom fabricated for a mosaic, beach glass, pebbles, glass gems, pottery shards and found objects for mosaics with nostalgic appeal, tempered glass, and stone.
Below is a list of ways that we work with clients. If you have questions or specific requirements for your custom art project, please contact Sophia.
Mosaic Art Commissions
Contemporary mosaic artists have at their disposal the full range of professional construction techniques used by tile-setters as well as more specialized techniques gleaned through experimentation driven by creative need. Architectural mosaics include mosaic wall murals, kitchen back-splashes, tub surrounds, floors, and utilitarian sculpture like benches and fountains.
Commissioned Fine Art Mosaics
These are meant as indoor wall hangings and offer a wide range of options as to backings, adhesives, and tesserae (mosaic fragments). Your unique ideas and style can be reflected in a brilliant custom mosaic. Imagine sitting at your dining room table with a huge mosaic tree on the wall, sipping your morning coffee, taking slow deep breaths, feeling nourished by the magical energy of the mosaic and the perfect tableau…. Ahhh!!! life is good.
Mosaic Fine Art
Aside from commissions I am constantly creating mosaic art on wood panels suitable for hanging and other substrates suitable for display as sculpture and whimsical folk art (e.g. watering cans, stepping stones, jeweled top glass mosaic tables, garden spheres, large suncatchers). My fine art (wall art) mosaic works are created on a rigid backing in my workshop and available for shipping anywhere. In the San Francisco Bay Area I am able to offer delivery of artwork within 100 mile driving radius of Vallejo, Ca. (link to online store, etsy store etc)
Mosaic Art Classes
I offer mosaic workshops at my Vallejo mosaic studio as well as at various locations around Vallejo and other Bay Area cities where my outdoor mosaic mural workshops are hosted.
Corporate Team Building Workshops
These are group workshops that aim to bring together a co-created group vision based on shared spiritual and personal values – and the group will participate in the creation of a group art piece symbolizing the group’s shared vision and commitment to team co-creation and co-visioning.
I am available to facilitate community based groups in making mosaics for either indoor or outdoor spaces. The techniques used provide for a less costly and faster method of creating beautiful mosaic murals. The cost involved for these mosaic projects depends on the number of participants and the surface area to be covered with mosaic and the cost of the raw materials chosen for the project. Contact Sophia for further details and to discuss your community mosaic project.
Take a mural making workshop with Sophia and learn all the needed techniques for creating a community-built mosaic of your own. This is a great class for community organizers, non-profits, as a team-building activity for corporate teams, artists, teachers, and anyone wanting to learn how to make their own large scale mosaic mural.
For my papercrete sculptures covered in mosaic the work is completed at my studio and I am able to deliver in the San Francisco Bay Area or to ship to other locations.
