My glass mosaics are created with handmade smalti tiles from Orsoni Glass in Venice, Italy. When creating a mosaic, I begin by painting the image in watercolors to better see the shapes and colors that will steer the finished art piece. 

Each smalti tile is then shaped by hand with a tradional hardie and hammer. There is a meditative quality to creating mosaics, losing myself in the placement of each tiny piece.
