Focal points; what's your favorite?
How do you begin a mosaic? I like to start with a focal point. The center of a beautiful plate is one way, but my most favorite piece of tess in the whole world is a mushroom coral. Imagine this as the center and then all white china, shells and smalti in rays out from the center (it's been done and done beautifully, by, I think, Sonia King).
What's your favorite focal?
