Eyes on the Prize! Richey Receives Orsoni Award in Venice

On 16, Oct 2009 | No Comments | In Exhibits & Museums | By man-admin

That’s Julie Richey, winner of the 2009/2010 Orsoni Prize, with Lucio Orsoni, Honorary President Orsoni Smalti Veneziani, in front of her winning entry, “Night Shirt” which now hangs in the Orsoni Gallery in Venice.

Says Richey, “In addition to all the lovely prizes – the Masters in Mosaic Course with Antonella Gallenda, airfare, a lovely room at the Domus and 1,000 Euro, Lucio gave me this beautiful hand-blown glass bowl with 24k gold leaf.”

JoAnn Loctov, Orsoni’s representative here in the US, has just notified MAN that an online gallery featuring ALL 98 the Orsoni Prize 2009 entries is now available at

The Domus

Here’s Richey again cradling that beautiful bowl on a patio just off the Domus, the sumptuous bed and breakfast attached to the Orsoni Foundry and School. Through various sources, MAN has learned that this very patio has been the scene of many mosaic crimes as students have gathered there after long days in the classroom.

A Personal Note

Orsoni and their parent company Trend, have been MAN supporters since the inception of the magazine. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them both for believing in us from the start. It has been our honor to be associated with Orsoni/Trend — two enterprises totally committed to the art of mosaics.

Grazie — Nancie and Bill
