Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

After a page or two on mosaics' history and famous practitioners (e.g., Chagall, Gaudi, and Picasso), this English artist sets the stage for beginners by fully investigating the materials and tools needed for this craft, then showcasing most of the techniques--including cutting, applying adhesive, casting, grouting--in step-by-step photographic format. The 16 projects are graduated in terms of difficulty, from easy to complicated; all are geared to novices, with a fine sensibility to good contemporary design. Among the more intriguing projects, all of which feature good instructions and color photography, are a geometric sun catcher, plant pot with ladybugs, and an elephant panel. Unfortunately, the supplier list, at the end, is restricted to British firms. Templates and glossary appended. Barbara Jacobs

I purchased this book to start my very first mosaic project. It was very easy to follow and showed exactly what you need to do. I was never stuck wondering how to do something. My first project was the fruit bowl, which turned out very well and looks professional. There are excellent projects for the beginner and projects to work into as you get more advanced. Highly recommend!
