New Commission For Digital Roots Studio

May 24, 2014 in Commissions by melissadelgado@me.com

digital roots

Digital Roots Studio is a new media transfer business in Piedmont, CA that needed a sign for their office studio. They wanted something unique that represented  their logo as the main design. I decided to make the mosaic using stained and vitreous glass, and they gave me the idea to use old film reels to represent the letter “O’s”. I loved the idea because I usually use found objects in my pieces, and I knew that this would give the mosaic another interesting layer. The final piece measured 12″ x 36″ and was framed in a silver metal floating frame. (not shown in photo) This project was a lot of fun to make, and  it was an honor to work and make this mosaic for such wonderful people from my community. I hope this mosaic hangs for a long time in their studio.

If you have a design that you would love for me to make into a custom made mosaic please contact me .

1rst consultation is FREE!

And check out my other commissions!

Con Amor,

Mela

The Hummingbird Tribute Mosaic

May 6, 2014 in Hummingbird Tribute Mosaic by melissadelgado@me.com

abuelita carmen y melaMe and my Abuelita on my wedding day on August 13, 2005

Last year my Abuelita (grandmother) went to a better place after fighting Alzheimer for over two years. Since then I wanted to create a project to honor and remember her. That is how I came up with The Hummingbird Tribute Mosaic. This project is to honor a loved one that has fought or is fighting any disease, and with it I would like to create for your loved one an unique piece that can be displayed at your home or even given to that special person as a symbol of energy, vitality and persistence.

50% of the proceeds from each mosaic I create will be donated to the Alzheimer Association to my Tribute Page in honor of my amazing grandmother Carmen Rivera Burgos who fought with all of her courage, power and heart, and now she is my own spiritual hummingbird.

I truly believe that honoring and remembering is what keeps that someone always alive!

To learn more check out The Hummingbird Tribute Mosaic page, and also The Hummingbird Tribute Mosaic Class which I will be giving on The Longest Day of the Year on  June 21, 2014!

UPDATE: THE CLASS ON JUNE 21 IS –SOLD OUT !– NEW CLASS ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 2, 2014 

SIGN UP TODAY, SPACES ARE LIMITED!!!
