Mosaic Art is having a resurgence in the United States and glass in many forms is playing a major role in this new wave of artistic creativity. In this workshop we will look at several of these types of glass, focusing on the traditional Italian smalti and comparing it to the products from Mexico, China, and the United States. In addition, we will have a sampling of other materials available including some marble and stone. Each participant will produce a small sampler using traditional techniques. Next you will design a larger piece, using these materials in your own style. We will cover design transfer and realize the final work of art using the direct method. There are a limited number of hammer and hardies available for you to try as well as a collection of glass nippers for you to experiment with.

Examine the stunning examples of medieval illumination from the Glencairn collection as well as many other references. From the grotesque and humorous decorative borders to the delicate intricacies of miniature paintings we will find many sources of inspiration. Working with pencil, brush and paint we will develop a brush stroke and color vocabulary appropriate for the painted page and by the end of the workshop each student will create their own illuminated page. No prior drawing or painting experience is necessary. Many designs will be available to work from, for inspiration or to copy directly. More experienced students will have the opportunity to try their hand at calligraphy or gilding.
