This is another wedding mosaic this time for a bride who loved birds and was a love bird. The green sprig between the two birds represents the couple’s life together and the border alternates pomegranates, which are a symbol of marriage and prosperity, and heart shaped vine leaves. The Love Birds Mosaics is made using the thinset method – first a board was prepared with a purpose made frame and then the tesserae were set one by one into a bed of tile adhesive so that they were flush with the level of the frame. The background stones are a mix of different hues bringing out the rich, deep colours of the red and yellow natural stones.
