Mosaic Techniques and Traditions : Projects and Designs from Around the World Paperback
by Sonia King
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, materials and techniques come first: bases, adhesives and grout; shaping and placing tesserae; practical and artistic design considerations plus several methods of creating the actual mosaic.
Put that information to use on an array of magnificent international projects - from a Blue Willow Tray to a Rock Garden Fountain - all beautifully illustrated and with the level of difficulty noted.
