My dear friend Jan lost her beloved cat Lorenzo this year so I'm working on a mosaic of him.

House Number and beautiful plants

This picture was taken right by the steps to my front door. I made my house number in blue, green turquoise and white stained glass with a mirrored dark blue border. The plants are Begonia 'Paul Hernandez', Euphorbias, Fuchsia 'Firecracker' and the beautiful purple plant is Hardenbergia violacea.

Work on the studio progresses

I'm finding that the light is very nice with four skylights and big windows.

And I keep adding watering cans. Today my watering can friend said he had a ceramic pig shipped from Paris and it broke in transit so they want me to make another watering can from the shards. They said the artist shipped them another pig and signed it!

Talavara Tile Mirror

Here is my latest mosaic. It is 21" x 21" and is made from Talavara Mexican tiles. That's my garden reflecting in the mirror.

Watering Cans at the ready

Here is the cache of watering cans I have ready to mosaic. My friend who has purchased five of my cans has already said he wants the one on the far left. I just found it at a local antique store. It has an amazing finish on it and I suggested to my friend that he might not want to mosaic over it. We'll see what he and his wife decide.

Three fishies

My friend Irene commissioned these three fish for her backyard. She is a great lover of fish and these will dangle in the wind. Next will be the grout.

Watering Can in Progress

This is a commission for a watering can. The couple already has three of my watering cans. This one is for a friend's birthday. I'm using pastel handcut plates.
