It is rather fitting that, as I write my blog about sunflowers, the sun is really shining (with a bit of warmth!) here in Bristol!
We all love sunflowers, dont we? Those gorgeous yellow golden petals and the generous wide brown seed head, with shapely green leaves. I have made mosaic sunflowers for some years now, and am really getting it down to a fine art! I have collected all sorts of yellow, orange and red tiles that I use - different thickness and textures to really bring the sunflower to life! Here are just some of the sunflower variations I have made -
This week I made a sunflower bowl. I had to use the same thickness of tile for the mosaic, so it was as flat as possible and could be used practically as a bowl. I used extra glue so the tiles stuck really well on the slightly curved surface, varnished the sides and back, and sealed the mosaic, so it really is a useful bowl as well as being a work of art!
I do hope you have enjoyed seeing my mosaic sunflowers, and, as always, I love to hear from you,
