At Aidan Hart Mosaics we utilize the techniques of masterly Byzantine and Roman mosaics. For example, we surround each member with a “halo” of background andamenta. We combine complementary colours of green and red in the flesh. Unlike lower quality mosaics that use a lot of rectangular tesserae, we plan things to avoid this, preferring the grace and rhythm of cubes.
