The simple definition of “Mosaic” is a design constructed from smaller pieces. It is the choice of materials, plus the skill of creating and placing the pieces that contribute to the personal, artistic and practical value of the “Mosaic.” Studio Mosaic was founded from a passion for creativity and design. Like each piece within a mosaic, we create a design for each individual space that brings our clients’ vision to life.
