For my Mum’s birthday present (big birthday) I made a mosaic table top inspired by an ebony and mother of pearl Chinese style sewing box, which has been in the family a long time. The mosaic is made from glass tiles and broken crockery and black 1980’s glassware, which proved absolutely fiendish to work with, but worth it in the end. The table came from a local bring and take recycling event – so, free, which is always good. The mosaic is about 14 x 16 inches. …BTW, I photographed it outside for the daylight, but it’s very much an indoor mosaic. The writing in the corner is hbba, Happy Birthday Barbara Anne and my initials.
