I spent a whole summer making my first mosaic, I was hooked! I began looking for ‘found objects’, collecting little bits of glass found on the beach, enamelled pieces, crystals, experimenting to see what worked. It was thoroughly enjoyable, intensive, compulsive, obsessive..I would keep just adding another little piece, watching the space slowly fill..in some ways they remind me of the jigsaws I used to enjoy doing as a child, the fascination of watching an image form, a drive towards completion.
A good site for mosaics:
