Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mosaic work, the art of laying small pieces of ceramic tile, glass, or stone on a larger background, such as a wall, floor, or piece of furniture, originated in the Middle East in ancient times. Today it is used as a visual accent, often in an outdoor setting. The projects in this book, by several mosaic artists, range from small items like jewelry to a large birdbath. Many additional examples of mosaic work in interiors and gardens are also pictured to provide inspiration for those who want to design their own projects.
