Glass & Mosaic

 

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