Mosaic Techniques & Traditions: Projects & Designs from Around the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the breathtaking work of hundreds of artists on display throughout, this visually arresting volume showcases mosaics from all corners of the globe and teaches the skills needed to produce 15 beautiful pieces. The history of the art, tools and materials, and techniques come first: bases, adhesives, and grout; shaping and placing tesserae; practical and artistic design considerations; and several methods of creating the actual mosaic. Put that information to use on an array of magnificent international projects, all beautifully illustrated and with the level of difficulty noted.

 

“[This] beautifully and comprehensively illustrated volume is an excellent source of both practical information and artistic inspiration. Fresh and useful.”—Booklist

 

 “Showcases some of the best work...it is most notable for the numerous photographs of indoor and outdoor mosaics from all parts of the world.”—Library Journal
