    I am making mosaic tiles for the stepping stones in our garden. These are the first 3 and I am so happy with them that I had to show them off.
    Thanks for looking.

    It is clay mosaics with glaze, I make the tiles with raw clay, bisque fire and glaze and fire them again. It is a labor of love but I love making them.

    You are just full of ideas, I am so impressed. I am lucky if I get up one day and can find the inspiration to make a cup of tea.

    My favourite is the first one, but the detail on them all is great. You're so clever!

    They are very special Cin--extra nice! Having lost my dog last winter, I can't help but think what wonderful reminders of your furry family this stones will be someday. Your kitty pieces have a Mary Engelbreit look; I have always loved her work.
