Rick Shelley Mosaics and Class

I'd like to rave a bit about a wonderful artist and delightful man, Rick Shelley. He's a Baltimore renaissance man, a working artist for, oh, at least a couple of decades. He created the mosaic at the Walters of the ancient world, a project that consumed him for about a year.
And he's teaching a mosaic class at the American Visionary Art Museum on June 18th. I was lucky enough to take this class a couple of years ago, had a wonderful time, and left with two completed small mosaics after learning how to cut glass!

The course information is here.

Rick also makes delightful glass insect pins--perhaps you've seen him and them at Artscape and other local festivals--and from time to time gives performances of his Theater Serenissima, an exquisite miniature theater.

Check out his work at the website.

Do you have his email address? I took his class last year (it was terrific!) and mosaic'ed my clawfoot bathtub and medicine cabinet. I'd love to share the photos with him!
