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. It is so easy to learn and every day objects such as wood, vases, glass, pottery, etc... can be altered into treasures that will be cherished for a long time. Glass nuggets are uncomplicated to use for projects such as the one above but you can create designs and pictures using broken pieces of pottery and tile just as well.
