When contemplating design work in stone for our Bay Area clientele, the history of the successful partnership G2 Design has with the talented professionals at Fox Marble tells us to look no further. To execute our visions and the desires of our clients – whether simple, or complex – requires an honest love of craft and a true understanding of the material. The willingness and supreme talents of everyone at Fox Marble shines brightly upon everyone associated with our projects.
The inspiration for this project, the complete overhaul of a Master Bathroom in Mill Valley, under the guidance of Van Acker Construction, began with our client responding to the purity in the fine selection of Jerusalem Gold slabs in Fox’s inventory. We then collaborated with Pippa Murray Mosaics to create a unique floor using pieces of the same slabs installed architecturally.
This mosaic floor derives its sentiment from the inclinations of the client and G2 Design through Pippa’s craft. The Jerusalem Gold mixed with Breccia Pernice stones form gently wandering lines that subtly thicken, thin, double and disappear. The mosaic pieces, or tesserae, for this floor were hand cut using a mosaic hammer and hardie, then individually set using the reverse technique. The effect is lively and inviting and suits the room beautifully and is sympathetic to the existing architecture using swivel bolt to secure units.
The Jerusalem Gold in the mosaic is echoed in the carefully crafted stone surrounds & panels in the Bathroom. We were all thrilled to work together with such an extraordinary team of Client, Artist and Contractors. We have had the opportunity to work alongside Fox Marble on many magnificent projects. Fox’s team is meticulous and professional always and they produce superb work.
G2 Design and Pippa Murray Mosaics are all dedicated to the design, fabrication and installation of exquisitely crafted custom architectural details for private homes and institutions.
