This beautiful space (previously in Port Salerno) now in downtown Stuart has developed a very popular new class! Diane and Asia regularly offer mosaic classes as well as sell mosaic art and do commissions. An all-day workshop on the basics of mosaics is offered periodically in the studio, but this new class ‘Mosaic Jewelry Pendants’ can be ‘taken on the road’.

 

 


Attention activity directors! Your community can have Diane and Asia come to your clubhouse and present this fun three hour class where students will learn to make beautiful mosaic pendants. Painting classes are fun but how about something new and different to offer the members of your club? These talented mosaic ladies will come to your clubhouse with all the required materials and run the class.

 

 

 

 

Pendants can be done with glass, tiles, beads, china, charms – the options are endless. It is fun, easy and the student goes home with one or two mosaic pendants. The fee is $45 per student. Minimum student number is 10 and maximum number of students per class is 20. (The class can be conducted more than once if your group has more than 20 members that sign up).

Christine’s is a coastal home décor (and treasure) shop with a great classroom space in the back. Christine teaches chalk painting (bring your small furniture piece – and learn to make your own chalk paint!) Find furniture painting and other art classes on Christine’s website www.christinescoastaltreasures.com.

Studio Space for Classes, Workshops and Working On Your Own

 

Shortly after moving in, Diane and Asia threw a ‘Grand Opening celebration” the highlight was a student art show. The many students that enjoy working in the studio over the last three years brought and displayed their artwork . There was plenty of art (purely for art’s sake) but the functional mosaic art…coasters, trays, lazy susans, house numbers…wow! The variety of mosaic art that has been created in the studio over the last 4 years is amazing!

 

Functional Mosaic Artwork

Diane has enhanced her mosaic self-education at the Union Square Art Cooperative in NYC and at the Institute of Mosaic Art, Berkeley CA. She has attended workshops with Martin Cheek, Mireille Swinnen, Michelle Petno and Jeff Halverson (some of the best known local and international mosaic artists). Diane’s portfolio is as varied as the application of mosaic art can be.  She is experienced in stained glass, smelt and picassiette. Diane has applied her art to garden items, upcycled art (mosaicking found items to give them new life), commissions for clients (address plaques, store signs), and has often explored her mosaic artistic voice.

Also instructing at the studio is Asia Booth, an award winning mosaic artist of tremendous talent. An avid ‘gamer’, Asia specializes in video game themed art, most of her work features extremely tiny pieces (all hand cut). Asia’s passion for drawing and unique mosaic design is reflected in her art. Her gamer pieces were featured in “A Fractured Perspective” a gallery showing by Luna Mosaics of Orlando. Asia teaches “Intro to Mosaic” and is available during studio hours for students. Asia and Diane recently both placed in the highly competitive Annual McMow Art Glass completion.

The very popular ‘Intro to Mosaic’ day-long workshop provides the basics in mosaic techniques and you go home with your 8”x8’ mosaic wall art. ‘Intro workshop’s are conducted several times a month.  You can also take advantage of the ‘Studio Hours’ where you can work on projects at your own pace. There is a reasonable fee for studio hours (which includes use of the tools and materials in the studio).

VISITING   INSTRUCTORS:

The highlight of the 2017 season will be a 2 day workshop by Martin Cheek, an internationally known mosaic artist. He has been teaching for over 20 years and is the author of several bestselling books. Martin Cheek incorporates his own glass fusions into his mosaic art and will share that process during the 11-12 February workshop at the studio. Details on this workshop can be found on the studio’s Facebook page or by calling Diane.

 

portsalernomosaicmartincheekworkshop12669607_10206931062129712_1606293107671611304_n
Special classes by mosaic artists and artists of other disciplines are being scheduled for 2017. Francesca will be presenting an ‘Opus and Andamento Workshop’. Opus and andamento are time honored techniques used in traditional mosaics. Francesca will review traditional applications and introduce a modern approach, discuss tessellation, patterns, negative/positive space and the student will put this instruction into practice on their own project under Francesca’s guidance. This is an excellent opportunity for advanced beginners or intermediate mosaic artists to delve into some of the more advanced techniques of the art.
The studio will be participating in the St. Lucie County Rock and Gem Club Show at the Martin County Fairgrounds on October 22-23. They are particularly excited to be featured as the “Artist in Residence” at the Ground Floor Farm of Stuart, where their art will be featured for the months of December and January. The studio will present a special stepping stone workshop during their residency.

McMow Art Glass Announces World Premiere Of Their Own Exclusive Sheet Glass To Celebrate 40th Anniversary

In honor of their 40th Anniversary, McMow Art Glass in cooperation with Bullseye Glass, has created a one-of-a-kind art glass sheet style. This custom, hand-rolled glass is used for all types of art glass including kiln-formed (fused), mosaic, and stained glass. Phil Materio, Vice-President of McMow Art Glass pulled inspiration from the colors, art and architecture that have made both South Beach and Palm Beach so famous.  “FLORAdia” glass is named for his mother, Flora Materio.  This style will be exclusive to McMow Art Glass and its customers. The Rickie Report shares the backstory and some sneak peeks.  Kudos to McMow for celebrating this milestone in such a meaningful and creative way!

Phil Materio tells The Rickie Report, “We found inspiration in the design aesthetic which has made South Florida a mecca for artists of all kinds. Bright pops of color, tropical weather, and design and architecture from the neighboring cities of both Palm Beach and South Beach provided us with ample inspiration”!

 

 

Our FLORAdia Styles:

The FLORAdia Glass is now available at McMow!

Stay tuned for our upcoming class schedule. We will be releasing special classes which will include exciting ways to use this one-of-a-kind sheet style!

 

 

FLORAdia Glass: A Bullseye/McMow Collaboration!

mcmowIMG_8906

Close-up of FLORAdia Glass Bowl

 

 

 

 

In collaboration with Bullseye Glass Co, McMow worked to create a this one-of-a-kind art glass sheet style. This custom, hand-rolled glass is used for all types of art glass including kiln-formed (fused), mosaic, and stained glass.

 

 

Phil Materio, Vice-President of McMow Art Glass knew that he wanted glass that would feel like South Florida. We pulled inspiration from the colors, art and architecture that have made both South Beach and Palm Beach so famous. When the colors came together it was exactly what he had envisioned – a perfect blend of the these two stunning destinations. He decided to name the glass after his mother Flora Materio. Flora lived in South Florida and often times traveled with Phil to both South & Palm Beach to see McMow’a installations in both areas. Remembering these trips he knew immediately FLORAdia was the perfect name for this new glass creation.

Phil shares, “While I have fond memories of my mom in Florida, it was really her encouragement that led me to immerse myself in the art glass world,” said Phil Materio, Vice President of McMow Art Glass. “I couldn’t think of anyone I would like to honor more than my mom on our 40th anniversary year. She was one of the big reasons McMow even came to be.”

 

 

How is art glass made:

 

“We worked alongside the glass crafter at Bullseye to determine which colors would be compatible with each other. Bullseye has a very similar business model – also getting started about 40 years ago. Like McMow, they know that art glass is a fine art and have pushed the envelope of working with glass year after year”.

 

 

Here’s a video about glass making at Bullseye

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DO7584g57z0

 

 

Glass is made by melting together several minerals at very high temperatures. Silica in the form of sand is the main ingredient and this is combined with soda ash and limestone and melted in a furnace at temperatures of 1700°C. Other materials can be added to produce different colors or properties.
What is Art Glass? colored glass that’s manufactured for use in art and architecture. This type of glass can be used for stained glass and mosaic work, and most are tested-compatible for fusing and other methods of forming glass within a kiln.
