This was one of those vases you get flowers delivered in. Liked the shape, and wanted to use up some scrap glass pieces I had.

Blue and green were used with a charcoal grout. The rim & inside were painted with black glass paint. It can be used for a vase or candle holder now.

Thank you for looking, and as always comments, questions are so welcome!  Smiley

Is it very heavy with the tiles and the grout?  I really like the colours.

Not really much heavier than usual. Glass and grout add very little weight in a smallish piece like this one.

This one only took about 6 hours total. The glass was already cut, and no pattern to speak of so it went pretty quickly. Smiley

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.
