Finally...the Bird Bath

The bird bath is a work in progress.  Much tile, much cutting and nipping, even more patience.  I make it up as I go along.  The theme is a blue violet clematis with green vines gracing the flowers.  I decided on a plum grout for the bowl and a sandstone/yellow grout for the base. Now I have to clean and seal and then voila--done!

Mosaic Abound

 This is a themed pair I did in rose and green.  I named the mirror Waltzing Matilda because of the small porcelain doll sitting in the sugar bowl on the lower left.

 This pique assiette table was made using two platters and three plates all with the roster theme.

Pique Assiette

Just completed the Blue Willow mirror using a hybrid pique assiette/mosaic method.  I really enjoyed doing this piece and intend to several others to follow.  It uses 4 different types of blue willow china, blue glass and mirror tiles and blue mirror glass nuggets set in white grout.
