Mosaic is all about how the pieces fit together. Color, shape and size all work together to bring a detailed, energized composition. But what happens when you want to overlap one shape with another? For a mosaic, the answer is to fuse those pieces together, and that is exactly what you will learn to do on the first day of the workshop by creating dimensional fused glass. During the next three days you will integrate these pieces into an exciting mosaic for your wall or garden. Techniques in cutting glass, selection of glass based on color value, and creating a composition with interesting flow will all be taught in this exciting new class.

What he finds fascinating about mosaic is how transforming and enriching each new project can be. The laying of each tile can be a meditative process of pattern, symmetry and design. In the end, hundreds of unique pieces come together as one.
