Mosaics Around the House

Here are two murals I just did for a private residence in Oakland, CA.

This is "Frog Vine" and is on a small wall that juts out from the side of the house. Here is the wall "before".

I created it in my studio then adhered it to the wall in pieces.
But before grouting, I must tape off all the edges to get the clean look that I like.

That process takes hours.

This mural faces the street for passersby to see.
If you look carefully, you can see two frogs playing in the vines!
It is made of glass and tile and is 14" x 87".

The second mural was made of pieces left over from the
previous Vine At The Arbors mural installation.

Again this was created in my studio, then adhered with Thinset,
taped off, then grouted.

This is on the side of the house overlooking a garden area.

It is also made of glass and tile and is 62" x 62".
