Overview

Mosaic artist Martin Cheek provides a practical "mental tool kit" to assist the reader in making fused glass mosaics. Growing out of 5-day master glass, this book begins by exploring creative influences and the development of a design and continues through the execution, with an in-depth exploration of the uses of color and texture in glass mosaic art. Illustrated with more than 300 color images and driven by an engaging text, each chapter offers techniques and examples, and concludes with a challenge designed to expand the reader's artistic and practical abilities, like making a subtle mosaic using analogous colors or making a piece inspired by a favorite artist, and learning the techniques for using a glass fusing kiln. While written for seasoned mosaicist, there is something for glass artisans at all skill levels. A gallery of the author's works provides ideas for the reader's own creations.
