In addition to teaching my basic welding classes here in Houston, I have been asked to teach some workshops for the Society of American Mosaic Artists. They are havering their annual convention in Houston this year and they asked if I would teach some classes on how to make Mounts, Hangers and armatures for mosaic Artwork. I made many armatures over the years in the museum exhibit business and I believe that I can present some eye opening material to these folks. The problem in hanging mosaic work is that it is so heavy. Mosaic is primarily glass, stone and cement. Can’t get much heavier than that. Also, because of its rigidity, mosaic work cannot flex as a rule. Steel is the ideal material for making hangers. With today’s modern welding equipment anyone can create beautiful, strong support structures in their own garage.
