Combining the popular craft subject of mosaics in a home and garden make-over theme, this book includes original step-by-step projects and inspirational examples showing how to create mosaics using pebbles and other natural materials. Mosaic-making is the craft craze of recent years, and understandably so. Although the results may look complicated, the basic technique is easy to master, allowing even beginners to create original decorative pieces for the home. Talented designer Ann Frith has drawn on the ancient tradition of pebble mosaic to devise 12 contemporary projects using pebbles and other natural materials such as broken slate, flint and glass. Traditionally used as outdoor decoration on garden paths and floors, Ann also shows how it can be incorporated in the home--in entrance ways, conservatories, bathrooms or on fire hearths. In addition to the detailed projects, inspirational examples of pebble mosaic in both new and historical settings, and drawings by the author showing further ideas and colorways, set the scene for further experimentation.
