The Art of Pebble Mosaics
The Art of Pebble Mosaics
Howarth, Maggy
Pebbles can be used to create imaginative and pretty patterns - their different shapes and colours provide an endless opportunity for original designs. This practical guide is for anyone who would like to add interest to his or her garden by creating unique pebble mosaics to decorate paths, patios or walls. Firstly, the book gives advice for finding and selecting materials, laying a simple mosaic and using designs in various parts of the garden. This is followed by step-by-step instructions for creating a variety of patterns. Finally, a series of basic designs is illustrated, including shapes for stars, flowers, trees, birds and borders, as well as more advanced ideas for commemorative plaques, figures and pictures. The materials are available from garden and landscaping suppliers, and also from sustainable, natural sources. The book should revive interest in this traditional craft which has been all but lost due to there being few practitioners and few books on the subject.
