Highly regarded, admired and much desired, smalti is the oldest mosaic material available today. The centuries old material is made from thick sheets of coloured glass.
The colours and differences in height and light interaction make it the material of choice for mosaicists all over the world.
Presented by the Mosaic Association of Australia and New Zealand (Victorian Branch), this judged exhibition with prizes, highlights the use of smalti and other mosaic materials to produce outstanding works of art.
Floor Talk: Thursday August 16 at 2pm
