The ancient, yet highly accessible art of mosaic is currently undergoing a revival, becoming increasingly popular both as a versatile craft and as a decorative feature in contemporary interior design. This fabulous collection of twelve original projects presents inspirational ideas for indoor and outdoor mosaics, including a mirror frame, a table mat, a paving stone, a decorated box and a plant pot. Aimed at both beginners and the more experienced mosaic artists, the step-by-step photographs and clear instructions guide the reader through all the basic techniques while the gallery of work by a variety of artsists gives a further insight into the range of marvellous pieces that can be achieved.
Elaine Goodwin is one of the leading mosaic artists at work today. She regularly works on commission, producing mosaics for both outdoors and indoors.
