This is the beautiful dish that my neighbour made last week. It is still a little dusty from grout so will polish up much brighter but it is gorgeous. She thought she wanted a green and gold dish, but after taking some mosaic tiles back to her living room she discovered that actually she wanted red and gold with a little green. When we looked at tile options she instantly wanted glitter and shine. Although hard to see because of the dust, the pale tiles are actually gold backed glass. The ellipses were to be a big feature and she did try and put the whole pack on but eventually gave up the struggle and made do with three sets.
Here is the layout for another dish that was being made by another visitor to my studio – I haven’t yet seen the finished project because she finds it hard to put glue to tile! As you can see, any colour scheme works beautifully.
The dish measures 30 cm across so is big enough to be table centre or fruit bowl. It takes at least a day to plan and glue the mosaic tiles, then it needs to wait 24 hours before grouting. I will teach you all you need to know about finishing off the dish even if you don’t complete the project in the day. The dish can be in your colour scheme and design and I have lots of patterns to work from if you need help with the design. If you’d like to make one of these do get in touch. The dish will cost £70 for the day, including all materials.
