I've been very stubborn, and didn't want to share my tile projects until craftster had a ceramics forum. But now there is one and I'm so happy.  Grin

Here are the pics of a mosaic I made for my master bathroom. It's actually a pseudomosaic, instead of individual tiles, it is bigger chunks of tiles with grout lines carved into them. So that when you grout it, it looks like a bunch of small tiles. You can get away with a lot of strange tile shapes that way.

This was the first project I did, I have more that I'm working on throughout the house, I will post them when I'm done.







This is a detail of what it looks like before the glaze fire:


thanks for looking! And thank to Leah for adding the ceramics forum! Yippee!!

Whoa, thanks for posting, it's good to know about this board. 

How fantastic that you can make your mosaic actually look like something.  I can only do sort of generalized large shapes, this is very cool to see those birds and sun and fish - very inspiring.

Beautiful! Smiley
