Sherri Warner Hunter with her maquettes

Sherri Warner Hunter teaching at the Society of American Mosaic Artists conference in Lexington

I am here in Lexington, absorbing mosaic mania, an annual event.    The workshop I attended today was entitled “From Concept to Presentation: Models, Maquettes, and Drawings” with the teacher, Sherri Warner Hunter, from Bell Buckle, Tennessee.  Last fall I attended her workshop in San Antonio, learning her techniques for creating extremely durable sculptural mosaics from polystyrene foam, fiberglass mesh, and thinset cement.
