Choosing A topic
I chose to make a mosaic as it is something which I've wanted to do for a long time.
I thought about basing my mosaic on either Roman mosaics or the works of Antoni Gaudi.
I chose to research Antoni Gaudi as I find his work more interesting and appealing.
Mosaic is clearly related to work of Gaudi
Use of materials
similarity of technique
