Inspirations and 24 Original Projects
The book opens with a chapter on Inspirations, looking at mosaic art and interiors around the world. A detailed chapter on Techniques then follows, giving instructions for working with everything from the various types of tesserae, such as broken crockery and tiles, to how to prepare items such as window frames and mirrors. The projects then follow, with a superb range of stunning yet practical ideas - from a fine mosaic vase and widow surround to a mosaicked garden terrace, table and planter. Full step-by-step instructions are given for the projects and clear guidance on all the accessible materials used. Drawing on their unrivaled sense of colour and original design, Kaffe Fassett and Candace Bahouth will open up the world of mosaics to every home decorator with this innovative collection of ideas and projects.
