Magic Carpet Ride custom mosaic

This spring Johannah worked with a client to design and create a custom mosaic for their home. The piece was created for a specific location in their kitchen, and we used colors and nature themes found through the house.

A series of process shots from idea sketches to color palette, through the creation of the finished piece. We used Italian smalti, an opaque glass and traditional mosaic material, for the leaf silhouettes and various glass and porcelain tiles for the background.
