In 1986 mosaics for interior and exteriors were added to the studio's repertoire. Di Stefano Ruiz pioneered the use of stained glass as the main component of mosaic stepping stones and table tops.
Commissioned work is customed designed in either the ancient traditional style or contemporary mixed media.

Applications include: fireplace facades, floors, walls, fountains, pool accents, pavers, and sculptural motifs.
