Dalle de Verre Workshop & Kokomo Glass Factory Tour with Verdiano Marzi
In this 6-day workshop with Maestro Verdiano Marzi, students learn the core techniques of the Dalle de Verre panel process. In mosaic, light reflects off of opaque tesserae; in Dalle de Verre (translation=slab/ tablet of glass) panels, the image is seen as the light travels through the material. It’s a unique process with fascinating effects. Day one of the workshop is a trip to the Kokomo Glass factory where students will go on a private tour of the factory. Students will learn about how the glass is created and will then select the specific materials for their dalle panel mosaic. During days 2-6 at CMS, students learn all the steps to creating the panel including the proper techniques for cutting and texturing the tesserae, positioning the tesserae on the cartoon, and finally, cementing, framing and cleaning the work. This is a great opportunity for students to expand a mosaic vocabulary while working with a Master Artist.
The emphasis of this workshop is on learning the technique of Dalle de Verre, so student designs should be simple— working within a framework of 12” x 15”. The cost for the workshop includes: all supporting process materials for preparing and cementing, a heavy-duty metal armature, and use of CMS tools. Students will be responsible for selecting and purchasing their Dalle de Verre glass and special hammer (optional) during the field trip to Kokomo.
*Departure for Kokomo will be at 6:00 am on 5/7. We will have coffee:)
