One person’s trash can be the same person’s treasure. While learning to facet the richly colored, inch-thick Dalle de Verre (French for slab of glass), Claire discovered that the residual chips are themselves visually compelling raw mosaic materials. It continued from there . . . Come join Claire’s exploration of Dalle’s mosaic potential!  Learn to process it using a faceting hammer and wheeled nippers.  Create a variety of tesserae (pieces): thin and shell-like, cube-like, amorphous. Explore the effect of different substrates under Dalle (reflective and non reflective materials, clear glass). Experiment with placement resulting in outcomes like high dimension and blended colors. Plan to bring home an 8” x 10” mosaic.
