Mosaic-making is one of the most enduring and popular art forms, and for good reason. This title gives you all the information you need to produce exquisite mosaics of your own, from the traditional to the contemporary. Projects to create include a richly patterned firescreen, an abstract table top and an Aztec-style trinket box, and there is practical advice on materials and tools required. Helen Baird's introduction to creating mosaics offers a contemporary perspective on this ancient skill. Fully illustrated in colour the book provides all the information needed to produce exquisite mosaics ranging from the traditional to the ultra-modern.
