Wednesday Wonder: House as Mosaic

Today's Wednesday Wonder is artist Norma Gatto. In the "Chicago Tonight" video below, Gatto talks about the creation of her "glass mosaic masterpiece", which happens to be her amazing home.

Below is a slideshow of Gatto's artwork, which also is featured in Handmade Blooms: The Floral Art of Norma Gatto.

My thanks to PBS NewsHour Art Beat, where I first learned about Gatto.

I love that she sat and meditated on what she should do. And then it came to her. Her Muse and she are clearly in sync. And yes, the glass is her masterpiece...that and her life.

Thanks, peace,

"You know what? The older you get, the more self-confident you get." I wish that for every artist.
