Sycamore In Smalti
August 19, 2011

Sycamore In Smalti was our first dabbling into the realm of smalti, the oldest, most vibrant form of glass mosaics.  This project was the result of a introductory course in smalti at the Chicago Mosaic School.  It exhibits flow (andamento), beautiful contrast, and mystery, as one critic described it in the class.  There are also 24 carat gold pieces laced within, a very common material for backgrounds in byzantine mosaics.
