Fairy in the garden

A mosaic onto slate. The blue, shimmery glass came from a broken bowl belonging to my folks. I've known the bowl for years. Good to have it in a mosaic instead of the bin!

Very nice work, really. How did you make that body of nymph? Was it prefabricated or is it your creation?
Be careful! Nymphs are frequent targets of satyrs! :))))

Thanks Sandra.
I've recently made a new fairy mosaic and however I photograph it, I just can't show it off properly. Most annoying!

I think I'm going to paint the grout so it gets a bit more definition. Keep meaning to get into the studio.....too cold! I've some mustard tins I keep meaning to mosaic and use as teaspoon holders.
