VOTE for my "Summer Roses" PieceMakers Mosaic Artists Challenge

This is my piece for the "Summer" theme challenge ,
I used a 8 " Terra cotta flower pot, glazed it and fired it in my kiln, it is no longer porous. Easy watering . Made all the tiles you see on the flower pot. All are made from moist clay and kiln fired, all tile expect for the border rose tiles are hand painted by me. I wanted to do a rose garden , since i love pink roses, so made them a little thicker than i normally make my sculptured roses.
I have 27 hand sculptured roses and rosebuds on this piece , 3 bluebirds, 13 small 3D flowers, and 46 3D leaves not including the flat ones.

We start voting May 1st. Link will be added later.

Please check out all of our pieces.

Thank you

Victorian Hankie Mosaic Cover

I finished this piece a few weeks ago, started out using a wood tissue cover, I first primed it with a great wood primer, base coated that 2 times. and Started gluing on my hearts, and vintage china rims. I added hearts into each corner of the top . and one on each end of the cover, added some sways on each long side in the middle. filled it all in with stained glass in a jadeite color. Once the glue dried, I grouted in a white, let that dry and sealed it really well with a grout sealer, the finish touch was the pearls I glued on around the edge and the cut out center. Done.
Need any help to start your first masterpiece?, post a comment here and your email address and I will reply.
