Mosaic with swans

I want to show you my latest mosaic project I finished today. I love mosaics and every now and then I find I just have to make some kind of art out of broken pieces of pottery or glass. This one was started using a terra cotta flower pot saucer. Mosaics are fairly easy to do, and the more you work with them, the easier they get.


This is the finished dish. Three little porcelain swans were added on the lip to give it a bit of artful whimsy. These figurines can be found at thrift shops ~ flower figurines can be pretty too, also little people figurines.




I always end up mixing more grout than I need when doing these mosaic projects, so this face that I formed from the extra grout will go nicely in the garden. A little bit of paint and he'll be finished.


One art project that turned into two!
