Editorial Reviews

Kitchen Gardener Magazine
Anyone who has ever wanted to try their hand at mosaics will love this book. Gorgeous color photos will inspire and instruct readers to create their won exciting mosaic projects. This is a book not only for those interested in the craft of mosaics, but also designers and crafters in other media looking for innovative new ways to use color.
Library Journal
Well known as a textile designer, Fassett here teams up with weaver and mosaicist Bahouth for a colorful venture into mosaic art. This book is valuable not so much as an instruction book but as an album showcasing their work. Good instructions are provided for some of their indoor and outdoor projects, but many craftspeople will no doubt use these as inspiration for their own projects. Suitable for arts and crafts collections. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
Magazine Threads
If you've ever wanted to venture into the world of mosaics, this book is all you need. Gorgeous color photos will inspire and instruct you as you create your own exciting mosaic projects.

Meet the Author

"Color and pattern are my obsessions, and playing with them in different mediums leads to a stimulating life." Kaffe Fassett enjoys worldwide artistic recognition for his visionary, organic and instinctive uses of color and pattern inspired by centuries of decorative arts and the compelling world of nature. He is the first textile designer to be given a one-person show at both the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. He also is a leading fabric designer for Rowan Patchwork and Quilting and the leading knitwear designer for Rowan Yarns. Born and raised in San Francisco, Kaffe moved to London to Paint at the age of 19. He became a permanent London resident in 1964 and from London, travels, exhibits and teaches around the world.
