This calendar schedule organizer and journal is 8x10, a perfect travel size and includes plenty of space for all of your important dates. As with most of Fassett's oeuvre, this volume is more an assemblage of highly imaginative ideas than a traditional how-to approach. The book offers stunning yet practical ideas -- from a fine mosaic vase and window surround to a mosaic garden terrace, table, and planter. Printing issues have been fixed! Teamed with expert needle artist-turned-mosaicist Candace Bahouth, Fassett proves no less adept at manipulating the harder materials--glass and ceramic tesserae, broken china and tiles, mirror fragments, pebbles, seashells, and even faux pearls--than his accustomed softer substances of fabric and yarn. The bottom third of each page is lined for note-taking and perfect for expressing your thoughts and feelings. But again, as is typical of Fassett's productions, the simple act of leafing through these pages offers unlimited inspiration.
And perhaps mosaic work is not so different from textile manipulation after all: witness the many pieces composed like a patchwork quilt, or the tapestry-upholstered armchair that reveals itself actually to be entirely covered not in fabric but in ceramic tesserae. It includes detailed instructions for working with broken crockery and tiles, and preparing items such as window frames and mirrors. . The top two-thirds of each page is blank, ideal for sketches, doodles and drawings. This is a rich collection of creative projects for both interiors and exteriors.
