It's been no secret that I love indulging in crafts, and one of my newest (only in the last couple of years - thankyou to Lynn, my friend who first took me with her to classes) is mosaics. There is a lot of satisfaction gained in SMASHING tiles and mirror and such and then putting the bits back together to make something lovely. I also have a good friend who is a ceramics artist (her web site is in my side bar) and I've passed the mosaics "bug" onto her as well. What is great about that relationship - is that we can make and fire all kinds of special small items and ornaments that we include into our pieces. You can see what I mean by checking out some of the selection on her site.
This is a birdbath I made for my brother's birthday....which was last October. I haven't quite been able to let it go because I love it so much, and he is about to do some backyard renos..... so I've used that as the excuse to not hand it over! Aren't I naughty!! My time is running out because he has said something like he "might see it for this years birthday". Ooops. Busted!
First part done - the "bowl".
Rubie being curious as ever.
