My First Mosaic Pot

Mosaic Pot made at Aldridge Gardens in Hoover, Alabama

This past weekend I attended “Playful Mosaics: Can you Pique Assiette?” at Aldridge Botanical Gardens in Hoover, Alabama. See what I made? FYI “pique assiette” is a style of mosaic that incorporates pieces of broken ceramics into the design. I used a broken saucer, glass globs, tiles and buttons on my pot.

The instructor was Melanie Colvin. She is a mosaic artist that loves to share her expertise with the budding craftsperson. She is the one who suggested that I use the “black sage” color grout on my mosaic. I love it.

The mosaic class cost me $40 (member price). All supplies were included. I think it was a bargain.
