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.
