Email for Purchase Info



A friend mentioned that I hadn't done anything with millefiori for awhile, so I thought I should use some. I do like how this one turned out, a bit frenetic, as millefiori often are. For those of you unfamiliar with mosaic materials, millefiori means "one thousand flowers" in Italian, and refers to the tiny pieces of class with flowers, stars and bullseye patterns in them that you see here. These are made in Venice, Italy, and they are cut from a rod of glass that has the pattern running the entire length of the rod. 

And it's just two weeks until I teach at M3 Gallery. There are just a couple of spots available still, so if you're thinking about joining us for the workshop, don't delay in signing up.
