St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, Gaithersburg, MD
An original mosaic panel, approximately 10 feet tall by 7 feet wide, designed and installed as part of an overall upgrade this Parish Gathering Space.
The dynamic, multicultural parish of St. Rose of Lima wished to create an original image of their patron saint to welcome the community while they gathered for worship. Through a collaborative design process, Rambusch helped the community first verbalize, and then visualize their own particular image of Saint Rose.
Their wonderful image of Saint Rose sits on a luminous field of bright yellow gold smalti, anchored by four bouquets of roses, which are anchored to a frame of sepia-gold.
Owing to the success and satisfaction of this collaborative process, the Parish next commissioned Rambusch to create an original presentation of Our Lady of Guadeloupe and the Four Evangelists.
