YOUR SPECIAL MOSAIC (29/10/2018)

Entrato nel laboratorio di Matteo è come entrare nella casa di una persona. Si respira la passione di un’arte che nasce da un’intima fiducia per quello in cui realmente si crede.
Una persona disponibile che rende tutto semplice nell’uso degli attrezzi di un’arte.
E non vedi l’ora di mettere le mani al lavoro per condividere assieme a Matteo i segreti di un mestiere..
È stata un’esperienza nuova, fresca, per me.. piacevole .. le ore trascorse assieme sono state così veloci..
mi auguro di intraprendere con Matteo un corso che duri nel tempo.. e che possa dare continuità ad una sana curiosità del mestiere che mi ha donato... grazie

THE STORY

I live and work in the Province of Lecce. I've had many working and artistic experiences, in particular related to painting. Anyway, they never actually satisfied me, that's why in 2004 I decided to attend a Mosaic Art course. I can truly say that that has been the year of my creative breakthrough!
Once I finished the course, I worked and collaborated with other Mosaic Master Artisans. With them we developed Mosaic projects, very important at a cultural level, both nationally and internationally.
In 2008 I've opened my atelier, beginning a new creative and artistic path. This led me to create on commission, and to design and produce personal works and collections that represent my knowledge and sensibility.
Curiosity and creativity. These are the two words, if I have to choose any, that depict my relation with the Mosaic. Curiosity towards the substance, the color, the shape. Curiosity that allowed me to interpret the Mosaic in a contemporary way, after the classic study of the mosaic techniques.
Tiles, spaces, rhythm, balance...these are all the elements that compose the Mosaic. In my atelier, at the heart of Salento, ideas take shape, they become expressions. The Mosaic results as the essential protagonist.
It's a strong passion, apart from being a job, that continuously stimulates me, and pushes me to create and grow.

WORKSHOP

YOUR SPECIAL MOSAIC

Matteo, mosaic maker

102

What better than your name can identify you? Decorate with a mosaic the initial of your name or of the person you want to give it to. Imagine the letter of your name with a mosaic part in it. You can use it to furnish an old dresser, a shelf, or any other place to bring your personality. In fact in this workshop you can decide the decoration and the color of the tiles. These will be used to fill up with a mosaic the etched space in the wooden letter. Later I'll show you how the marbles, stone-paste and gold leaf tiles are cut. We'll see how to lay the glue down and how to position the tiles to create the decoration of your personal letter. Of course, once the object will be finished, you can bring it back home with you. The only things I ask you is to tell me the chosen letter, so that you can find it ready to be decorated. Moreover you can choose between the blue or dove-grey color to paint the letter yourself. The workshop will last about 2/2.5 hours.
