Mosaïques, le secret en est perdu

Mosaics, the secret is lost

Course details

"Mosaics"; if this term designates artistic, decorative, artisanal techniques, which can relate to any surface related to architecture (pavement, wall, ceiling, vault, column, bench, bathtub, baptistery, tombs, facades...) and to the object (box, table, ciborium, tabernacle, handles of dagger and votive shield...), it also qualifies portable works of reduced dimensions.

These mosaics, called "easel", emancipate themselves from the place they are likely to live and find like the table, their own autonomy. It is this type of mosaic, that you will be able to realize by covering with discontinuous elements, cut (tesserae) with appropriate tools (hammer, pliers...), a given surface, previously prepared in this purpose.

The pedagogy, within this workshop, is resolutely oriented towards the adaptation of the mosaic to innovative artistic proposals. It is nourished by the history of these techniques, the links that unite it with other disciplines and the influence it has on the creation of major artists.
