If you have china or pottery that you love and use, some will inevitably break. Don't be upset.
Consider a "Fresh Twist" beginning to your future artwork.
Here's a "memory mosaic" I created with broken pottery from when my children were growing up. By the size of this mosaic, you might think that my children spent years throwing dishes at each other. But, no. It's made from broken shards I collected, as well as from my dishes.
It looks great in my garden!
If you want to try your hand at this, I suggest you start with a small project, a wall hanging or a stepping stone for your garden. You'll be amazed at what you can create, so enjoy!
