There are many possible techniques to create mosaic, as there are many different materials and supporting surfaces.

I use the ‘direct method’. It consists in placing more or less evenly small pieces of marble, of pottery or of molten glass onto thin amounts of cement.

It was the method used during Antiquity.

My creations are all released in my workshop on separate pannels.
According to the size of the subjects, the sorts of supporting surfaces can vary.

Those I usually work with are made of metal covered with a special chemical which prevents oxydation and facilitates the cement’s adherence.

These pannels are then put together.
The final step involves covering the joints with cement and tiles.
