Signage with Style
I am a Textile Designer so when I first got the call asking if I would be interested in designing a sign, my first thought was -hmmmmm….how do I respond? I had never done a sign before. The next thought was intrigue, especially when she mentioned Mozaic as the name. I do indeed have a fascination with mosaics so I said, “YES!”. I am so happy that I did! Here is how it turned out.
The sign was a fun exercise of design, function and beautiful aesthetics. And yes, it was also a learning experience. This unique art endeavor blended my fabric art with graphic design while also adding a new material for me, copper. The copper was an exciting layer, adding dimension and sparkle to the sign.
The actual sign was two layers of acrylic panels. The back panel had the decal imprinted with an image originating from a detail of one of my silk paintings. The copper was hand cut with a boxing knife, then glued onto the back panel. Then came the second acrylic panel with the custom ordered copper numbers adhered to the top surface.
Voilà! The sign came together. Mounted on the column at the entrance of the driveway, it is a stunning welcome to the house. I am happy I said,” YES!”
