Large Stones: the art of mosaic made large
Artful stone work has many elements, and one of them is knowing how to use big stones. Working with large stones can be justified on aesthetics alone. They add drama. It is hard to take your eye off them until you start seeing the carefully selected stones around them.
But they also add structure and integrity to any project. Dry wall installations need a finely tuned mix of gravity and friction to hold themselves together. The added heft, when place properly, adds to their ability to fight against the harsh conditions that weather subjects them to.
Large stones in a mortared installation may seem like an indulgence. But the size at the bottom is not just an illusion of stability. But higher up, these stones are a magnet drawing the eye’s attention.
A great mix of large and small stones adds texture…and look at the various colors!
