The artwork of over 50 contemporary mosaic artists reveals the diversity of materials used and forms created in this ever-growing field. From small pieces of glass, stone, pebbles, ceramics, found objects, and other materials known as tesserae, these artists "paint" images of great intricacy and stunning beauty. In skilled hands, these small angular bits of material form works of art that are filled with fluid motion and life. Presented here in hundreds of vibrant color images, they include public and private installations, sculptures, wall murals and hangings, windows, plaques, medallions, floors, triptychs, furniture, and more. Visual texture, mixes of opaque and transparent tesserae, and the visual flow throughout an image keep viewers riveted to these ever eye-catching works of art. This book will be a source of inspiration for all who appreciate this ancient yet ever-evolving art form.
Jeffrey B. Snyder has been writing on a wide range of topics, including art, for nearly twenty years. He and his family live in southeastern Pennsylvania.
