No Ordinary Alchemist

I'm discovering mosaics, those tiny pieces of glass or stone that, when placed in the hands of an alchemist, will leave you wondering how the magic happened.

My latest find is Marco Bravura of Ravenna, Italy. His work in mosaics astounds. Take a minute to watch this video about Bravura's extraordinary mosaic fountain, Ardea Purpurea, and then spend a few more minutes watching this video on Recuperi d'Oro.

The Ravenna Mosaic Festival opens October 10.
