FARE MOSAICO DI ANGELA SORBO

Glassmaking

Introduction

FareMosaicoLAB is the place where traditional mosaic art meets contemporary style.

From the Ravenna school, where the byzantine style is the rule, mosaics are made according to the direct or indirect methods and placed on provisional and final frames.

Three are the main tools of the trade: hammers, hardies specially modified for the log, and manual cutters.

From the sketch, we select the materials including coloured glass (Tiffany, cathedral, opalescent), glazes, vitreous pastes, gold leaf tiles (from Orsoni, the historic furnace in Venice), stone, marble, pebbles or grains (from local suppliers).

First, the material is cut, then the tile is placed according to the bonding agent that best suits the purpose of the product, while bearing in mind functional style features.
