Contemporary Mosaic Art Conference, Ashland, OR October 6 - 8, 2016


CMA is an international membership organization of mosaic artists founded by Pam Givens. To participate in the activities, forums and conference, you'll need an existing member's invitation to join. Please email me if you would like to join us or find out more about CMA.

I'll be presenting a discussion called "Anatomy of a Commission: The Genesis Baptistery." This talk is aimed at the process junkie in all of us. See design concepts, architectural drawings, patterns, assembly methods and installation photos. See how a "large and complicated" off-site mosaic is created and installed.

The assembled mosaic for the St. Frances Xavier Cabrini baptismal font in El Paso, Texas, prior to installation. Here it's shown laid out on another church's floor. 

The mosaic will be installed on the font floor and up the steps, with dry lunettes inlaid into the concrete and limestone floor. Most of the finished mosaic will be under water.
