Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mosaic is an art form that decorates everything from cathedral walls to subway stations. Its long history is still visible in many of the great mosaics that have endured to today. This makes it an ideal technique to use outdoors. Now you can add interest to your outdoor spaces by creating stunningly beautiful mosaics that will survive any kind of weather. Using their combined experience as artists and teachers, the authors show how even a novice can master basic mosaic techniques and easily learn the skills needed to practice this ancient craft.

Garden Mosaics showcases a wide range of outdoor projects such as colorful plant pots, unique garden ornaments, and the perfect table for outdoor entertaining, along with more unusual projects such as wall panels and stepping stones. Youll learn a variety of designing and laying techniques to achieve anything from abstract effects to representational images, how to make use of a beautiful mix of materials from ceramic to smalti, or when to use the direct or indirect method. With a comprehensive introduction to materials and techniques, hundreds of clear step-bystep photographs and practical instructions throughout, this is the perfect guide to make your garden special all year round.
