A class in mosaics......

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.

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.
