Nearly every day of my life involves mosaics in one form or another. Between collaborating and planning installations, working with students and friends or simply gluing stuff to other stuff, I am immersed. Welcome to shiny pieces...

Here I am in one of the oldest and culturally rich cities in the world. Yes, I went to the Hagia Sophia today and saw dozens of amazing mosaics crafted hundreds of years ago made of smalti and gold. But those are famous and easy to research elsewhere. 

I was also taken by these orbs lighting up the street near our hotel. I want one...will make when I get home. School project anyone?

I'm leaving for Turkey tomorrow, then India. So I won't be posting here for about 6 weeks. I will, however, be posting on the veggie voyager...

Here are the last few projects to come out of the dungeon as of late.

See you in April!

Lots of stuff going on in the dungeon right now!
The girls finished grouting the stepping stones. Personal projects are getting finished one by one. My butterfly mosaic is really close. Once the black crazy paving on the butterflies was finished, I was able to charge forward with the blue sky pieces. Have a look...

black is finished.

sky not glued down, but this is the gist of it!

large sky pieces so that groutlines do not interfere when light shines through
