I was going to try to make something other than “just a design” but I realized that as I’ve been using the new glass this week I’m starting to run out of some of the colors. I bought a variety pack of the new glass and it came with a few each of a lot of colors. Now that I know how much I like this glass I can plan a project and get exactly the colors I need to complete it. I like to do this with new materials so I can try them out before I plan a big project.
So, you may be wondering what I ended up with this week. A couple of weeks ago I made little square clay tiles, textured them and painted them with pretty, bright colors. They’re perfect with this glass.
I used an idea that my mosaics teacher showed me for the very first mosaic I made in class just about a year ago.
I made the ceramic tiles and combined them with the unglazed clay that I used yesterday. I think that outlining the ceramic tiles really helps to showcase the handmade tiles.
On today’s piece I outlined my handmade tiles with the glass.
