The Human Form in Mosaic is an original and revelatory exploration in the hands of an accomplished artist and author, using the human form as a means to introduce the reader to the technique of mosaic-making. The author guides the reader through the step-by-step process of individually cutting and placing 'tesserae' - the small pieces of marble, gold, glass and ceramic that go to make up mosaics - to articulate the human form, both the body and the face.
