Grandma's Tea Cup #2

Again this is a tea cup that belonged to my grandmother. I was so thrilled to find her china still existed in my mother's storage. There were a few pieces that had cracks and chips - darn-
Well you know I could not resist using them for a mosaic or two. This one still needs to be grouted - I just have to decide which color will make it look the best. It is amazing how the grout color changes things. This one uses more of my familiar style of mosaic glass work using the bits of china as accent pieces.
I like the word love at the top and will have to try this tecnique with some other words on future pieces. Well I am back to my studio to start Tea Cup #3 and #4. I have 4 frames after all.
