I did this mosaic about 2 months ago but only finished the grouting today.

"BLOM" is in fact my surname...and directly translated in Afrikaans means flower.

This piece is about an A4 size.

It's fun and the flower is so pretty. Is it a piece of pottery?

That's a beautiful piece of mosaic art!

In Dutch (Afrikaans is closely related to it, as you of course know) we say 'bloem'.

Beautiful work!  What kind of grout and glued do you use?  I want to get started in mosaic, so any advise you would like to share would be great.
Thanks!
