Mosaic Art School Photos & Journal from March 05 to 25, 2017

Country: Italy
Duration: March 05 to 25, 2017
Through our travels we had seen some incredible mosaics in northern Africa, the Middle East and Europe. We were always fascinated and amazed by the intricate ancient floor designs and mythical figures displayed in the mosaics. In November of 2016 we decided to take a trip with the Toyota Landcruiser to eastern Turkey. On the agenda was the Zeugma Mosaic Museum, in the town of Gaziantep and the Archaeology Museum in Hatay. Both of them have extensive collections of Roman and Byzantine Era mosaics. The Zeugma Mosaic Museum is the largest mosaic museum in the world, containing 1700m2 of mosaics mainly rescued from the archaeological site of Zeugma. The museums are state of the art. My interest was captivated again. I thought that I would be good at re-creating ancient mosaics, due to my art background. Upon the return of our trip in early December 2016, Mike started researching Mosaic Schools and found the Mosaic Art School in Ravenna, Italy. Ravenna is home to a unique concentration of mosaics that earned a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, and has become the International Center for Contemporary Mosaic. Artists now come to study, exchange ideas and techniques, and showcase their works. The Mosaic Art School was founded in 1969 and is taught by Luciana Notturni, one of the few Masters in the world allowed to restore Roman-Byzantine masterpieces. Her School cultivates the tradition of mosaic, teaching the same techniques used 1500 years ago. This was the opportunity of a live time.
