Modernism! And I don't mean tweeting and instagram. Three Catalan architects Lluis Domenech I Montaner, Antoni Gaudi and Josep Maria Jujol made use of mosaics quite a lot in the late 19th and the early 20th centuries. They mixed normal cut mosaic with irregular shaped tiles. Some of which looked like it was broken by brute force with little thought for beauty.
The picture above is just such an example by the more famous of the three;Gaudi. This was taken at the terrace at Casa Batllo. Very nice yes?
The name of this blog was shamelessly pinched from that wonderful programme starring Joanne Lumley and Jeniffer Saunders. Thank you for dropping by...
Most of the pictures are my own. When I can remember ( which is only lately) I credit the folks whose pictures I blog. Apologies to the owners of earlier pictures used in this blog. Back in the dark ages, I wasn't as tech-savvy as now.
Edina Monsoon has an Mb Bch Bao degree. Following a 3-year stint in the great Malaysian outback (Tawau, Sabah) she now lives and works in Kuala Lumpur where she contributes to the traffic on a daily basis. She has moved towards a more arty-farty lifestyle with blogging ( roll eyes ) and is now attempting to gain recognition as a more than adequate amateur violin player.
God if you can't make me thin, at least make my friends fat.
