Description
Much of the appeal of mosaic lies with the exquisite materials from which it is made, be it opaque and translucent glass tiles, brilliant metallics, cool and expensive marble, fabulously coloured smalti, broken ceramics and mirror glass, smoothly rounded pebbles and beads, or sea-washed glass and shells. Each lends its own character to an object, whether intense colour, reflective light, or a tactile quality. The Art of Mosaic shows through the work of contemporary artists how these sumptuous materials can be used to create dynamic mosaic features for walls and floors, fascinating sculptured forms, individual items of furniture and a host of decorative ornaments, for both inside and outside the home. There are eight practical projects to follow in this source book of ideas and designs, ranging from an abstract wall panel to a stained glass table and a sophisticated mosaic hearth. The book also includes a brief history of the art, and explores the imagery that inspires mosaic work. With practical sections on selecting materials and mastering basic techniques, The Art of Mosaic reveals how this enduring medium can bring style, colour and texture to your home and garden.
