Well, here's the finished product of the clay pot I covered with bits of broken china and pottery. The one on the right is the first one I ever made, using some leftover materials a fellow classmate had on hand (thank you again for sharing!). That was a challenge, which is one reason it's so gloriously gaudy with all those shiny beads, but that's OK. I'm giving it to my mother-in-law, Alta, whose taste tends toward the colorful and heavily embellished. I'm thinking it's a match made in heaven.
The one on the left is slightly more subdued, which will fit nicely in the Garden Room (our guest bedroom). And yes, I realize these are amateurish, but they are my first efforts, after all. I'm enjoying it so much I'm going to tackle a tray and then a table. I find it both challenging and restful. It's so beautiful outside today it was perfect for doing Mosaic work. I did notice that the low humidity and breeze meant the grout dried much faster, which made it a little harder to work with.
