Mosaics as totems

Helen has been exploring totemic shapes by combining terracotta pots and layering them with mosaics.

This (pictured left) is an early piece.

I get to do some of the tile cutting.

Once I get around to it and start mastering the cement sculpturing techniques I think we may be looking at a garden with a few object d'artzy. I do the shaping and Helen the covering and colouring.

The challenge of mozaics -- too fiddly for me -- is using cut tiles in mixes of patterns and colours as well as other materials, especially broken crockery. 

Using smashed china is called Pique assiette.
