Imagine my delight at finding a little mosaic shop on the little island of Murano, Italy, a water taxi away from Venice. I'd seen little charms and paper weights made from glass at a bunch of stores and asked a store owner where I could find the little mosaic pieces and he looked at me with a bit of confusion and then directed me to this shop. It was a gem.
On the island of Murano, I found a little mosaic supply shop and could barely contain my enthusiasm. With the tessarae I brought home, I want to make little mosaics. We bought some italian glass tile cutters to help with the job.
A tiny shop with 4 walls like this! Heavy bags of tessera on the walls and bin after bin of glass.
This was the mosaic in the entry to the little shop, a rectangular frame of large pieces around a mat to wipe your feet.
I found inspiration on the wall of the shop.
