Description - Mosaic Craft by Martin Cheek
The ancient decorative art of mosaic is, today, increasingly appreciated for the beauty it can bring to the home and artist Martin Cheek presents an array of items that are specifically designed for contemporary interiors. As well as a striking geometric mirror surround and a stylish side table, there are original projects for lamps, picture frames, vases, boxes, candle holders, and a range of designs with jewel-like millefiori details. This handy sourcebook opens with a section on tools and materials, then details all the basic techniques, step-by-step. The projects section features 20 new designs that build in complexity as the reader gains skill, from objects that can be made in a few hours to those that are more elaborate; it also includes a list of materials, detailed instructions, and photos of finished items. Completing the book are templates, a list of suppliers, and an inspiring gallery of the author's own work.
