PEBBLY PATHWAYS

by Esther Elaine

Pebble mosaics are an art form -- the patterns, or their randomness, can be spectacular. Stones, and smaller pebbles are set on edge, allowing for half to be set in mortar. They can be driven over as they've been made to last hundreds of years. 'Watch where you're walking!' has never a problem for me because I am obsessed with these intriguing pathways. Often, the flooring of an indoor-outdoor space (like a tea house) was set in such intricate patterns that artisans were flown in and commissioned to do the work. Just imagine finding the intricate patterned stonework indoors!
