Some views of the work in process in my studio in Saint Valery sur Somme.

The very beginning.

The model is a mirror image of the final mosaic, as I work generally in reverse method : I lay the tesserae upside down. at the end, I cover them with their support and flip the whole piece. And this is when I see the final mosaic for the first time ! 😀

In good company

The 2 other mosaics are Catacomb Venus (From the catacombs in Rome) , and the Genainville Rosace seen at the Archeological Museum of the Val d’Oise, soon to be published here.

Soon to be grouted…

with the help of my faithful Itto, extraordinary Border Collie !
