Summer Craft - Mosaic Mirror

The technique of mosaic was already being used in ancient history. It is simply the assembly of pieces such as glass, marble, ceramic, porcellan, stones, etc... to produce a new pattern on objects such as wall murals, buildings, artworks, and much more. Today the technique is still being used. Especially in the Mediterannean areas of southern Europe and in the Middle East, you can see wonderful examples of this craft technique.
