    Awesome. I bet you could sell it on some place like etsy. I think it's beautiful and I don't even really like chickens.

    Artful! Sure to be a hit with the urban chicken owners.

    It is a portrait of a bird on the little cricket farmette over east of town.

    Paulette - That's exactly what I was thinking of. "Mosaic yer chicken/farm animal." All the urban farmers I know are pretty sentimental about their birds. And the mosaic is classic and garden-y. This piece really can only live inside. If the wood gets wet, it swells and will crack the grout.

    Most of the materials in it were free - dead black coffee mug from the neighborhood coffeeshop, pallet wood - or darn cheap like the vitreous glass and the tile. Only my labor was pricey. Smile This weekend I plan on talking to the proprietors of Tasty and Art on the Ridge to see what they think. Since the piece going to be a Christmas gift already, it'll be for advice.
