Glass & Mosaic

Among the most ancient of art forms, glass is taught at SSA in its hot state (glassblowing), its warm state (fusing), and its cold state (flat or stained). Mosaic design, also ancient in origin, has many contemporary interpretations and uses, ranging from decorative and sculptural to architectural.
