    ITEM#: 11614938

    Maggy Howarth is one of the world's leading authorities on pebble mosaics. Her commissions fetch high prices and appear in city squares, hospital grounds and public gardens and fountains. She teaches at the Chicago Mosaic School, and her summer workshops in the U.K. sell out year after year.

    This comprehensive, one-of-a-kind sourcebook is now revised and expanded with 32 additional pages. Ideal for architects, landscape designers and home crafters, it features authoritative text and beautiful photographs that explore classic and new mosaic materials, designs, tools and techniques.

    The book opens with a section on techniques used in designing, making and installing pebble mosaics, including information on patterns, mosaics for frost-prone areas, how to pre-cast a mosaic, computer-aided patterns and unusual materials. Step-by-step photographs with clear how-to instructions show how each project is made. Maggy Howarth shares her designs templates for:

  • Allover patterns and interlacing patterns
  • Repeating centric patterns and borders
  • Celestial forms and geometrics
  • Humans and mythological figures
  • Reptiles, fish, insects, birds and other animals
  • Flowers, trees and other plants.

    There is also a special section that explores pebble mosaics as a decorative art throughout history.Complete Pebble Mosaic Handbook is a rich resource of design ideas, many based on Howarth's personal creations.

    • Mosaics

      I do early American rug hooking and find the primitive style is very compatible with mosaics. This book gave me ideas for rug hooking projects. Beautifully illustrated.
