Mosaic Today: Create Contemporary Projects Using New and Recycled Material

Mosaic Today: Create Contemporary Projects Using New and Recycled Material Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From an abstract wall panel to a sumptuous table top, each of these 16 projects—from Austria, Belgium, Morocco, ancient Rome, and beyond—clearly demonstrates how a design is developed, from the initial idea to the finished product. Praising the satisfaction to be found in mosaic work, with its simple techniques and stunning results, the chapters introduce materials and patterns—and explain how the process of application is an integral part of the design, whether using recycled china, glass, Venetian smalti, marble, slate, stones, pebbles, shells, or mirror. Each project offers room for individuality and may serve as a springboard for other designs, so that both novices and experienced mosaicists can find inspiration.

About the Author

Elaine M. Goodwin is the founder of the British Association for Modern Mosaic and the author of The Art of Decorative Mosaics, Classic Mosaic, Decorative Mosaics, and The Human Form in Mosaic.
