Fused Glass Mosaics: Master Class Techniques With Martin Cheek
By Martin Cheek
Mosaic artist Martin Cheek provides a practical "mental tool kit" to assist the reader in making fused glass mosaics. Growing out of his seven-day master class, this book begins by exploring creative influences and the development of a design and continues through the execution, with an in-depth exploration of the uses of color and texture in glass mosaic art. Illustrated with more than 300 color images and driven by an engaging text, each chapter offers techniques and examples, and each concludes with a challenge designed to expand the reader's artistic and practical abilities. While written for the seasoned mosaicist, there is something for glass artisans at all skill levels. A gallery of the author's works provides ideas for the reader's own creations.
