1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By J. Nuttall on Nov. 15 2007
Format: Paperback
I love this book. It is quirkiness in action - something to pick up on a gray day when you need life and colour and romance around you.

The authors each have their strengths and complement each other beautifully. How fortunate for their readers that they teamed up on this project! Candace Bahouth's tapestry chair and shell grotto are spectacular, monumental projects, executed by an artist with great technical vision. Kaffe Fassett's work, on the other hand, is loose, playful and free-flowing. Colour is his thing, not working with methodical precision.

I have a large collection of mosaic books, and this is definitely not the book I turn to when planning a complex project or looking for technical information. It is the book I pick up when I want to remind myself of why I love mosaic art.

If you think that beautiful mosaics can only be done with china and tile, you haven't seen this book yet! If you're tired of the sweet, pink rose mosaics, then this is the book for you!
The mosaics in this book are done in a delicious tapestry of jewel tones, often highlighted by found objects. The dazzling images in this book will have you looking around your house with a new eye and your hammer.
I purchased this because I have a killer knitting book by Kaffe and I wasn't disappointed! This is visual yumminess!

This book is a wonderful inspiration. I want all my surfaces and objects to be soooooo...vibrant with color. I have many mosaic books but this is the one I reach for when I am stuck for color or interesting ways of combining tessare to objects. I love it! It has lead me to explore all of Kaffe Fassett's books, he is genius with color. No other textile or mosaic artist has made me soar with inspiration!

Kaffe and Bahouth have presented a rather wide range of styles for and applications in mosaic. Don't know that I actually want to replicate anything ( what a bore), but it gives me pleasure to contemplate the creative images in this inspiring book.

My first review...
This book is the best out there (and I have seen almost all). The work is simply beautiful, unique, quirky-fun but mature, inspiring, well documented and wonderfully photographed (it's on my coffee table). The two authors, each with different styles and both fluent in multiple media, bring depth that is poorly lacking in most books on the subject.
For any pique assiette/found objects mosaicist, or artists who play with color, pattern, design, mixed media, texture and space I recommend it highly.
(While not on mosaic per se, Fassett's other books have too proved invaluable in my work. They're worth perusing if for no other reason than checking out this man's house! Whoa Nelly!)

I bought this for my sister-in-law who started doing mosaics but had no reference material. She loves it! Kaffe has an eye for colour and design that can't be faulted, and the instructions are clear and easily followable. There are a range of projects suitable for your home, or gifts. Great book, and I am in the good books with my sister-in-law!
