Mosaics by Joel Baker
We make pebble mosaics and cut-stone mosaics, occasionally mixing the two mediums. Most of our early pebble mosaics were laid in the traditional in-situ technique which dates back to ancient Turkey and Greece. Mosaics from this time still survive today.
The in-situ technique is not always the most suitable as it involves being on site for the entire making process, which can be months. Most of the mosaics we make today are made in pre-cast slabs in our workshop. We have developed our own method of making highly durable slabs which are easily transported to site for quick and easy installation.
Cut-stone mosaics, as an alternative to pebble mosaics, offer a flat surface plane which can be more appropriate in some settings. We often mix the two mediums for contrasts in texture and greater depth within the design.
