It's been a while, actually round about seven years, that I haven't touched my cutting nippers, hammer and hardie. Not to mention my tesserae. The feeling was, to say the least, therapeutic, fulfilling, almost like a dream. To be honest, it feels as if I have to learn everything right from the start and, I won't hide it, my mosaic project has not turned the way I wanted it. It is way far from good (for my own standards), lots of mistakes, project, colour and design wise, but I am glad for one thing: I did it, it's finished.

Muse Thalia, new mosaic print
There's a new mosaic print on selected jewelry items. It's Thalia, the muse of comedy and pastoral poetry. Show your sophisticated style by wearing this lovely pic of soft hues.
The "Keep calm and put the pieces together" design has been improved. It has been enlarged and looks more vibrant and stylish. Same with the other "Keep calm and mosaic on" quotes in pink, blue and green. Please note that all images are at 300dpi high resolution.
Mosaicology is currently working on a new "surprise" design (no quotes) due Spring.

Hi everyone and happy 2016!
This is a quick post to share an interesting story about Yeggy Michael, a Seattle based mosaic artist who creates public works of art that tell the stories of the community. Read this and this.

You (all) know I sometimes create digital mosaics that are available from the mosaicology shop.
I make my digital mosaics by hand. I mean I use the "good old" mouse. However, did you know you can actually use a software to do just that? I am not talking about constructing industrial-style mosaics with straight lines and no real manual-artisan intervention. I am talking about creating artistic mosaics, resembling real ones! Works of art.
The guy behind this software is Simone Aielli and you can find out more about The Mosaic Project right here.
The potential of this software is beyond your wildest mosaic dreams. And that's from someone who loves ancient and Byzantine mosaics.
Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year to you all.

Stumbled on this while doing some research for the translation of a make-up product. The things you come across while translating surely broaden your horizons.

Here's a new design at the mosaicology shop (on a tile): Red mosaic heart.
We like the idea of using faux-mosaic on a tile as this could inspire interesting combinations for decorative ideas. Hearts go everywhere. In a frame, on kitchen walls, in the living room.
Red mosaic heart is available on Girl's Tees, Women's Sweatshirts, Tank Tops, Mugs, Tiles, Teapots and Pillows.
