A new MOSAIC ART STUDIO has arrived in Hillsborough, North Carolina. With over 20 years of experience in making mosaics for artist in their medium or creating architectural projects for designers we have done them all. Teaching mosaic workshops has become a great experince over the years so we have also brought them along to keep the tradition alive. For more information we are located at the Eno Mill Art Studios.
Love at first sight. My first mosaic was in 2001 at the Scuola Mosaicista del Friuli in Spilimbergo, Italy. Mr. Burelli a great mosaic master taught me for the first time how to hold a heavy steel mosaic Hammer and how to use a Hardie that I had never seen before. Once I learned the variety of styles, techniques, materials, shapes I was officially a Mosaicista. It only took three years and counting...
I work with mosaics because of its delicacy and strength. Breaking them into tesseras creating something from raw materials is fascinating to me. I love the way Smalti shines but also the calm amazing marble colors like the yellow Siena and the white marble from the awesome caves in Carrara, Italy. My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully at detail and discover greatness in unusual places, especially in the materials that I use.
With twenty years of making mosaics I have learned to enjoy each mosaic journey.
I love making them for myself and for others to enjoy them everytime they see them over and over again.
Lots of love,
