Claire Brill
Dalle de Verre: Out of the Thick and Into the Thin of It
Touchstone Center for Crafts
September 22-25, 2017

One person’s trash can be the same person’s treasure. While learning to facet the richly colored, inch-thick Dalle de Verre (French for slab of glass), Claire discovered that the residual chips are themselves visually compelling raw mosaic materials. This workshop will cover the use of the faceting hammer; exploration of the effect of different substrates under chips (reflective materials, clear glass); and experimentation with chip placement to blend colors, create high dimension, and invent new andamento (lines or flow of pieces). Come open to working abstractly and exploring the wondrously luminous Dalle.
