Synopsis

Decorating and designing with mosaics has been popular for centuries throughout the world, from Ancient Greece and Rome to Mexico. Mosaic is incredibly versatile and a whole range of effects can be achieved using ceramic, vitreous glass, marble, mirror or granite tiles. Mosaic lends itself naturally to pattern as patterns are built up from repeated elements - as is mosaic.

This stunning new book explores the use of pattern in mosaic through 19 beautiful step-by-step projects. Each projects is designed to illustrate the different types of pattern you can create. For example, pattern can be created through colour, tone or shape, and can be geometric or fluid. Mosaic patterns often draw inspirations from nature, so you often see plant or animal motifs repeated, either as the main part of the design or as background.

With a comprehensive section on materials and techniques and with clear step-by-step photographs and instructions throughout, this is the perfect guide for the beginner, as well as experienced mosaic artists.
