Resident mosaicist, Sandra Robertson will present a preliminary design concept for the mosaic in the form of a scaled artist's impression, design rationale and storyboards of selected materials. Materials vary in price and you will be given pricing across a range of material possibilities. Sometimes, it's amazing how something as simple as gravel and tinted cements, can make an amazing water feature mural in mosaics.
OzMosaics concept design enables you to imagine the mosaic in-situ, allowing for reflection and collaborative discussion before the final design is presented. Computer designs showing the design overlayed in the installation area (where possible) enable discussion on size, colour and installation. We ensure the mosaic project sits well in the intended landscape.
