I recently made this birdhouse for my mother-in-law. I used a warped old pottery tile I made in class several years ago (textured pieces). Smashed it up and added mirror, stained glass, and flat marbles.


I liked this mix of materials so much I had to make another. This one uses textured glass, pieces of an old patterned dinner plate, and a few flat marbles thrown in for good measure. This one still needs to be grouted.

These are quite lovely!  I'd love to see the second one once it is grouted and finished.  I've always admired mosaic work - someday I'd like to try a piece or two.

These are fantastic!  Whip up some more.  You could sell some in cool shops around the country!  Love them!
