THE MOSAIC BOOK: IDEAS, PROJECTS, & TECHNIQUES (Paperback) BY PEGGY VANCE, CELIA GOODRICK-CLARKE

Mosaic work, the art of laying small pieces of ceramic tile, glass, or stone on a larger background, such as a wall, floor, or piece of furniture, originated in the Middle East in ancient times. Today it is used as a visual accent, often in an outdoor setting. The projects in this book, by several mosaic artists, range from small items like jewelry to a large birdbath. Many additional examples of mosaic work in interiors and gardens are also pictured to provide inspiration for those who want to design their own projects.

From Booklist
Vance and Goodrick-Clarke are sophisticated guides, inviting readers along on a visually stimulating tour of the countless possibilities for mosaics. Pictured are striking examples of architectural settings, such as gardens, pools, grottoes, and home interiors. Unique works by artists include jewelry, furniture, distinctively designed floors and walls, and decorative objects--all embellished with designs created in ceramic tile, glass, stone, marble, and some unexpected materials. This invaluable resource offers step-by-step projects, explanations of tools and techniques, and a final section of bold motifs, for use in creating mosaic designs. The guidance is here for anyone interested in acquiring hands-on skills, or just looking to be inspired by exuberant representations of mosaic art.
