    Default My Beautiful Mosaic!

    This is a beautiful mosaic given to me by our very own Cin. It was a trade for a schomb, but I think I came out on top! Only if everyone could get to see all of her wonderful mosaics! She has a wonderful talent, and just as great of a personallity! As well as her husband! Thank you for inviting us over Cin, and I hope that you enjoy schomb!

    Yes Pavel, all of the tiles are cut from wet clay,air dried, sculpted, painted with underglaze, fired to bisque, glazed with clear sent to a final firing. It is a long process.
