Duomo Orvieto. Very Moroccan type tiling.
I stumbled upon Martin Browns website http://www.martinbrownart.com/ when following up on some links from the website of one of Australia’s more wellknown mosaicists. I’ve been meaning to email him to see if I could use some of his photos.
I was just looking at the Mosaic group now, recognised the name and found that his photos are bloggable. Yay! Excuse me if I’m focussing on tables too much but I need a new dining table and a table or something to put my phone on… and you have to admit that the man is seriously good at tables.
There are more tables and things other than tables [like mirrors, murals, and lazy susans amongst other things] in his no1 photoset. Go check it out!
This subject came up on a mailing list and on The Joy of Shardsthere is a page which shows photos of how one person attached her mural to the wall.
