Mosaic's: Today's Timeless Reminder of Our History

With shelter magazines we've loved and lost still a tender spot for myself (I just this week, in the mail, recieved 'the post card' from Metropolitan)...I wanted to share with you a publication I did not know of until this evening.



Mosaic Art Now has published it's 3rd Edition. Please click on the link and take a few minutes to read about the Five Sisters collaborative work by Emma Biggs. It is a 35 foot long mosaic titled 'Clay End' that will/or did only exist for 6 months.


The process of discovery for the artist is so illuminating and even more so, so very inspirational for our work and the hurdles we some times face...you must see this publication! I won't give away any details...you really must read this awesome article.




I can not believe that a coffee book publication of this quality is only $15. Please join me and support this wonderful publication.

Thank you so very much to Paul Anater over at the Kitchen and Residential Design blog for introducing me to the mag.

  1. Dane,
    Welcome to the wonderful world of mosaics! As a working mosaicist very familiar with the origins and the evolution of Mosaic Art Now, I echo your thoughts. This publication has brought the awareness of mosaic fine art to an entirely new level.

    Welcome to the club...

  3. Thanks for the heads-up about Mosaic Art Now. Paul's love of mosaics has been rubbing off on me :-)

    Have you seen Sara Baldwin's tile mosaics?? They're absolutely stunning. You can link to her blog from her web site:
