Hummingbird With Torch


Madison Marquette’s Bay Street shopping mall, Emeryville CA,
in conjunction with SZFM Design San Francisco

ceramic & glass

This design pays homage to the Ohlone people, who were natives to the land
where the shopping mall was built upon. An Ohlone legend claims that the
Hummingbird first delivered fire. The design was created to be seen from a
distance, while driving past on a busy road. The details can also be appreciated
up close and, as with all mosaic art, can be touched.
