This title features contemporary ideas for decorating walls, floors and accessories in the home and garden. It is a sourcebook of mosaic designs and ideas, showing how to use smalti, marble, tessarae, vitreous glass mosaic tiles and found materials to make artistic mosaic designs for your home and garden. The projects include an abstract colour panel, an original garden seat, a colourful table inlaid with mosaic stained glass, an elegant mirror and a fabulous sculptured head. Beautiful photography captures the work of leading contemporary mosaic artists, including Elaine Goodwin, Mosaic Workshop, Cleo Mussi and Rebecca Newnham. It includes 400 specially commissioned colour photographs. "The Art of Mosaic" shows through the work of contemporary artists how materials can be used to create dynamic mosaic features for walls and floors, fascinating sculptured forms, individual items of furniture and a host of decorative ornaments, for both inside and outside the home. There are eight practical projects to follow in this source book of ideas and designs, ranging from an abstract wall panel to a stained glass table and a sophisticated mosaic hearth. The book also includes a brief history of the art, and explores the imagery that inspires mosaic work. With practical sections on selecting materials and mastering basic techniques, "The Art of Mosaic" reveals how this enduring medium can bring style, colour and texture to your home and garden.
