This series, consisting of five leaf mosaics, marks the conclusion of my immersion in this media. The cement board was left over from a large mosaic project, and the crockery was gifted to me as chipped plates and cups rather than going to landfill. The crockery and tile were the last of my mosaic resources from my shed.

Creating with discarded crockery produces shards that would usually go to landfill – instead, during my intensive mosaic creating phase, I collected the shards in buckets and a friend delivered them to a crushing plant where they were reused as road base.
