After studying mosaic art at a mosaic school in Spilimbergo, Italy and gaining experience at studios in Italy and Germany, we returned to Japan and opened a studio in former Horai Town, Aichi Prefecture. After that, we once again returned to Italy, opened a small studio in Trieste, and began working together as a married couple. We created everything from mosaics for churches and other institutions to small-scale mosaics. In 2017, we came back to Japan and started Kamomilla, a shop selling handmade goods, mosaic art items, and so on of an old Japanese-style house in Shitara Town, Aichi Prefecture.
Mosaic art, a traditional craft that has continued since 3000 BCE, is a decorative art technique where various colored stones, marble, and pieces of cut glass are arranged to create images or patterns.
In Western Europe, mosaic art is widely used in public facilities, churches, home décor, signs, and various other places. Living with mosaic art is sure to produce feelings of happiness.
