Landscape Mosaics

Mosaics are seen as a fun and interesting way to showcase a design with repurposed materials. They originate as far back as 3,000 BC in Mesopotamia and were very popular in the Roman Empire. Many people recognize the mosaic "Beware of Dog" sign in Pompeii, Italy or Gaudi's buildings in Barcelona. More recently, street artists have transformed courtyards, buildings, and walkways all around the world, and DIY gurus and even fine artists have repurposed various objects or "junk" with this technique. For this project, students were invited to create a landscape with a foreground, middle ground, and background. Each piece is hand crafted, molded to fit each space, individually glazed, glued down, and grouted. As you can see, some of these students chose places that were "out of this world," while others chose a place to represent a very special memory. Enjoy the scene!
