Step-by-step Techniques, Stunning ProjectsBook - 2006
A medium of timeless beauty and versatility, mosaic naturally lends itself to pattern, whether using ceramic, vitreous glass, marble, mirror, or granite tiles. In this new book, artists Emma Biggs and Tessa Hunkin explore the use of pattern in 19 striking step-by-step mosaic projects, each designed to illustrate the different types of patterns that can created through colour, tone, or shape. The projects, which range over a variety of techniques and materials, include a leaf-motif vase, a spiral-design table, and a boldly patterned splashback. Featuring detailed instructions and sequential photos, this guidebook also includes a comprehensive section on materials and techniques. Inspiring, instructive, and drawing richly from the authors' extensive experience as mosaicists, this is an essential guide for novice and experienced crafters alike.
