This stunning book explores the use of mosaic through 19 beautiful step-by-step projects for the garden. Adorned pots, garden figurines and ornaments, a bird bath and table, wall panels and more elaborate projects such as wall panels and stepping stones are just some of the projects featured in the book.
With a comprehensive chapter on materials and techniques and clear step-by-step photographs and instructions throughout, this is the perfect guide for the beginner, as well as more experienced mosaic artist.
