Digging up the past

Out in the dusty back paddock, under a mulberry tree lies a burial ground for long-ago broken ceramics and other discarded household items; old irons, tins and cutlery. Every couple of years the paddock is ploughed ready for the winter crops, and more treasures make their way to the surface.

This is my first go at mosaics - hopefully this pot will look OK (potted up with daffodils I think) and if so, my next project will be a bird bath. I love the delicate and ornate patterns - a shame to waste!
The owner of the mosaic studio has a garden filled with quirky little mosaic details too.
