8. Mosaics: Patterns and Pictures in Bricks

Chapter 8. Mosaics: Patterns and Pictures in Bricks

You might be wondering, “Just what is a mosaic?” The title of this chapter offers a clue. The term mosaic is used to describe artwork consisting of patterns or pictures created on a surface using stones, tiles, bricks, or even glass. You’ve probably seen an area above a kitchen sink that displays a pattern made up of small ceramic tiles glued to the wall. That is a mosaic.

Since the core of the LEGO system consists of small bricks and plates that you can easily use to form patterns or illustrations, LEGO is an ideal medium for creating mosaics.
