New Look for Website

Hello and thank you for stopping by.  I hope you can tell I am in the mist of creating a new website.  I will not go into the gory details but….I will tell you, this might not have been the brightest idea I have had.  I still have a long way to go in the technical end and hope to have it figured out soon.  Just so you will know,  I have been blogging since 2009.  I have another blog that I had tried to import here but was not successful, and lost the formatting on it in the process.  I would love for you to check it out, though please keep in mind the quirky look was not intentional.  Please bear with me as I continue with my transition and feel free to email me with any questions.  Thank you for your patience!  Oh and I am in the process of adding new work to my Etsy shop, this will be a slow process, but I do have merchandise in my studio and I am taking custom orders.

Thanks again for stopping by.

San Vitale – Byzantine Architecture

This beautiful film describing the San Vitale in Italy.  It is about 10 minutes in length so you may want to get a cup of coffee!  Please enjoy!

San Vitale is one of the most important surviving examples of Byzantine architecture and mosaic work. It was begun in 526 or 527 under Ostrogoth rule. It was consecrated in 547 under Imperial rule and completed soon after. The mosaics date between 546 and 556.

Speakers: Dr. Beth Harris and Dr. Steven Zucker
