Synopses & Reviews
From an abstract wall panel to a sumptuous table top, each of these 16 projectsfrom Austria, Belgium, Morocco, ancient Rome, and beyondclearly 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 patternsand 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.
