Mosaicists of every level will delight in this new sourcebook, featuring page after page of inspiring motifs. Arranged by theme -- from animals, birds, and marine life to flowers, cultural symbols, and childrens motifs -- these striking designs are easy to copy and scale. A comprehensive techniques section offers step-by-step instructions on everything from choosing materials and selecting colour combinations to cutting and grouting tiles, while a gallery section demonstrates how the motifs can be used to decorate ceramics, furniture, and accessories -- or be works of art on their own. Written by a mosaic artist of international standing, this is a rich source of ideas for all who aspire to this ancient, enduringly beautiful art form.

I just recently started taking mosaic classes. This book is great. It is very informational. It also has tons of pictures, which is helpful for giving design ideas. I highly recommend the book to anyone interrested in mosaics. Even if you are not an artist, the pics are fun to look at. Read full review
