The mosaics of frederic lecut
Across millenia Mosaics tell us of the lives, loves and deaths of our ancestors. Splendid mosaic floors, walls and ceilings distinguished luxurious Roman villas in all parts of the Empire.
Mosaics are a work of love and sweat. Each tessera – the little piece of stone, ceramic or glass which compose my mosaics – is painstakingly cut and laid on its support.
For the past 2500 years, the greatest mosaicists created their Chef d’oeuvre with infinite patience, accuracy and passion ! It takes between 25 and 100 times more time to create a mosaic than it would to create a painting of similar design.
Inspired by the Art of the past Masters, I create mosaics in the respect of the techniques and materials they used. When I cut or lay my tesserae, I am one of them. Beyond time, I am in communion with them. And when I look at one of my completed pieces, I’d like to think that they would approve of it.
The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.
Welcome to Mosaicblues. As you journey through these pages, I hope the love and passion you experience adds to your beautiful day !
