This was an interesting project. The clients for this mosaic have a giant cistern collecting all of their run off and rain water right underneath their front yard. Originally there were just some fairly uninteresting wooden lids covering the access points but they wanted art to reflect all of the vines and greenery in the garden. I created some mosaic medallions on hardibacker to replace the wooden ones. Much better!
The small one is made from porcelain tiles and the large one is stained glass. I prefer the stained glass; it is so luminous.
