From Hand to Hearth: Mosaic Fireplaces of the Arts and Crafts Era

by Theodore Ellison

On Sunday, February 17th, I’ll be presenting my talk on the history of glass mosaic fireplaces as part of the 32nd National Arts & Crafts Conference at the Omni Grove Park Inn, in Asheville, NC. The art of glass mosaic design in the Arts & Crafts fireplace – especially in Prairie School homes – will be shown in this visual presentation. You’ll see color, beauty, and craftsmanship in the form of handcrafted fireplaces that shows how glass mosaics became important within the Arts & Crafts movement. More information here.
