Kalyn

Just beautiful!

misti

Gorgeous work! I'm amazed! I've always loved mosaics and would love to have a unique bathroom and garden wall!

Genie

Oh my goodness, Chigiy, those are beautiful! You're really, really talented.

Karen

SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Clare

Beautiful...I remember the mosaic you have on your patio, you must have done that? I'd really like to see the animal skulls, if you ever feel comfortable posting them.

Kalyn, Misti, Genie, Karen,
Thank you!

Clare,
You are going to think I'm really stupid, but what Mosaic are you referring to? Was it in a post?
Thank you for visiting.

Chigiy, these are stunning! I love the way you piece things together like your beloved jigsaw puzzles.

Carol

I love your mosaics. They are beautiful! I wish I could do something like that, but I am not even one tiny bit artistic. When you are ready, I'd love to see a skull.

Annie in Austin

They're lovely, Chigiy - and like Clare, I remembered that you posted about putting bits of mosaic into your swirly walkway.

I looked, and found it way back in the middle of March.

nikki,
I love the whole jigsaw feel of this media.
You should try it.

Carol,
Anyone can do mosaic all you need is a hammer some tile and some glue. It's really fun.

Annie,
Duh, It's good that at least someone knows what I put in my blog. You are the best. I thought that Clare might be someone who had been to my house. I'm so lame. Thanks for the information.

Amber

These are gorgeous. I'd love to help you finish up your project. If you make some strong coffee and put on some good music, we could have it done in no time.

Clare

Hi Chigiy-

I thought I remembered some pictures you showed of your outdoor lanscaping and hardscaping, with a really beautiful patio type thing with a mosaic of pebbles...or did I make that up?

Clare

Oh...I see Annie found it. Thanks!!

Muum

these are wonderful, thanks for sharing them, I have looked at mosaic and wondered if it would be something I could enjoy. Any hints for getting started?

Yolanda Elizabet

Your mosaics are lovely but now I want to see them all finished too. ;-) Love your colour combinations!

There is another garden blogger who does mosaics, her name is Lady Luz from the blog Costa de la Luz Gardening. It's worth having a look at her mosaics. You can find the link on my blog.

Amber,
Could we make it wine instead of coffee?
It might take us a little longer to finish but it would be more fun.

Clare,
Yes Annie found it. She is way smarted and more astute than I am. And she obviously knows more about my blog
than I do:)

Muum,
A flower pot is always a fun place to start. Choose a cool shaped terra cotta pot.
Buy tile glue for outdoor use at the hardware store.
On small pieces I use Italian glass tile, stain glass pieces, broken plates or sea glass. These things are thiner and better for smaller objects.
You can use a tile cutter of a hammer to break them.
Just break them and glue them on.
Then you let your piece dry for a day and you grout it.

Yolanda,
Thanks for the information on the blog. I will visit soon.

Muum

thanks for the ideas, I'll have to give it a try.

Chigiy,

These are exquisite works - I had no idea. Somewhere along the line, I must have missed the post about your being a mosaic artist. The bathroom wall is an incredible work and I hope that you get it finished. (It's tough when you have two growing children and a garden and running ... you do an amazing number of things! If you are like me, you don't think a big project will ever take as long as it does. Maybe that's a good thing.) Now we'll have to make the odd inquiry about your progress and make gentle nudges.

I hope the Marathon went well and you are the last person I'd call a bumbler in the garden.

Ah, I have the same problem as you do with jigsaw puzzles. When I really want to avoid doing something, I haul out a puzzle and keep at it till it is finished.

Please let us know how the Marathon went. I am in awe of you!

Kylee

How pretty, pretty, pretty!

I have ceramic pieces broken in bags, just waiting for me to arrange them on the top of a bench. It was supposed to be my winter project last year. LOL. I've never done this kind of thing, so it will be a new venture for me. Wish me luck!

Elise

I can attest to Chigiy's skill as a mosaic artist. Every time I go to visit I'm blown away by the beauty and whimsy of her creations. Thanks for showing everyone some of your gorgeous work Chigiy!

P.S. So, are you almost done with that bathroom?

Tim

Wonderful!!! My daughter just finished an art camp where one of the projects was mosaic. Two lovely sea horses. I feel inspired after finding your work.
