Thanks everyone for coming!

What an excellent day today- My free mosaic demo went great. A lot of fabulous people came to learn about the mosaic process, sign up for my May workshop, and give me support. A sincere thanks for coming and I'll see you in a couple of weeks at Meiklem Kilnworks for a hands on garden mosaic class. The class is the last 3 Thursdays in May. Everyone will mosaic their very own garden bowl. Gotta love original artwork. Can't wait!

Big Thanks also go out to Hart's Greenhouse & Florist for hosting such a fun day.

I'll be in action working on an original garden bowl design. We'll see how much room I have, but I also plan on grouting, cleaning and polishing the garden bowl. I'll be getting my hands dirty as usual. I plan on having as much fun as possible without a glass of wine.

Grout time

I've actually been a way from the computer a bit. I've had my hands in concrete, glass shards and grout. That would really gum up my keyboard if I were to type. I'm getting ready for my mosaic demonstration at the greenhouse in a week and a half. I just grouted the 2 garden bowls I had covered with glass and pottery pieces. I'm happy with the charcoal black colored grout against the vibrant stained glass in the Disco Road Garden Bowl.

The Circles Garden Bowl looks softer with grayish blue grout. The immediate center is lost a little, but I really like how the outer circles fade into the edge. It reminds me of a geode- a plain looking rock on the outside, then crack it open to find a colorful treasure. I'd like to experiment with more color combinations. The average size of these garden bowls have been approximately 15 inches to 18 inches across. I hope to make some larger bowls as well. This will give more surface area to actually create a pictorial design. The larger bowls will definitely be heavier, but they would be perfect for a birdbath perched on a rock in a garden.
