Dalle de Verre Workshop & Kokomo Glass Factory Tour with Verdiano Marzi -SOLD OUT
A mosaic image uses the light to reflect off opaque tesserae; in Dalle de Verre (translation=slab/ tablet of glass), the image is seen as the light travels through the tesserae. In this new 6-day workshop with Maestro Verdiano Marzi, students learn the core techniques of the Dalle de Verre mosaic process and can add another facet to their mosaic vocabulary. Day one of the workshop begins with a field trip and a private tour of the Kokomo Glass factory where students learn about the making of the glass and can select the materials for their mosaic. During days 2-6 at CMS, students learn to create the Dalle de Verre ‘cartoon’, proper techniques for cutting and texturing the tesserae, positioning the tesserae on the cartoon, and finally, cementing, framing and cleaning the work. The emphasis of this workshop is on learning the technique of Dalle de Verre, so student designs should be simple—the size not to exceed 12” x 15”. Cost for this workshop includes: materials for cementing, a heavy-duty metal armature, and basic glass materials. Students will be responsible for selecting and purchasing their Dalle de Verre glass and special hammer during the field trip to Kokomo.
Students should bring heavy-duty work gloves, several simple design options (max size 12” x 15”), a notebook and pencil. Kokomo factory Tour hours will be different from class hours. Please consult with office. All additional materials are included. Prerequisites: Intro I, Intro II, Hammer & Hardie, and Direct Method (or by permission).
*Departure for Kokomo will be at 6:00 am on 5/15. We will have coffee:)
