Yesterday I took the first part of a two day class in doing mosaics using tempered glass.
I felt like I stepped into a world of inspiration. It was thrilling to be excited and challenged by new techniques.
Ellen Blakeley is a reknown artist who discovered this technique and whose work is fabulous.
Lucky for me, she lives close by.
Take a look at her website. http://www.ellenblakeley.com/gallery.php
Here are some photos I took yesterday of pieces around her house...and the last two are of projects I began and will complete today. I'll post my completed pieces tonite.
I will be grouting my big sphere, picture and my stepping stone.
