A friend of my son went on a trip to Morocco . When he got back he had a lot to tell me about the art he saw. He told me he visited tombs and saw mosaics that were very intense ans geometric. He said that he saw so much of these mosaics that he would dream about the shapes at night!
Moroccan mosaics have been around since the 14th century. The colors that you see today were added to their mosaics in the 17th century. They refer to mosaic as Zellige. It is terra cotta tilework with enamel with chips set into plaster. Zellige is geometrical and it is used on walls, ceilings, fountains, floors, pools, and table among other things. They are beautiful to look at and at the same time they can be intense. This stimulates many mosaic ideas.
I can only imagine how hard it would be to fill whole walls with this type of mosaic. I do think it is a very beautiful type of mosaic. I would like to take a try at doing a geometrical mosaic. Although these types are usually large scale, I plan to start out small and practice this before I do anything large. I am going to experiment to understand how to plan such a complicated design.
