This is one gorgeous mosaic bowl! This originally was a vintage sponge painted bowl pretty as it was, but I saw more potential for it as a piece of mosaic art. Found in a second hand store, ready for a facelift.
I created the mosaic inside the bowl using beautiful stained glass in blues, glass tiles in beige and blue/green, glass gems in a medium tan color and blue Smalti (specialized mosaic tesserae made from richly colored glass. Originally developed for Byzantine mosaics, the glass contains metal oxides which produce an almost infinite range of color possibilities.)
This beauty can be useful but it looks great just as it is. It looks wonderful in the sunlight and lamplight. Chances are when gift-giving time comes around, you will be sure to find someone who can appreciate the time and attention it took to create this mosaic.
Great for newlyweds or anniversaries. Gift yourself! You deserve a treat! Place it in the center of a table in the living room, dining room or entryway. Can be used for keys and coins, or just as it is without anything in it. I've used these mosaic bowls for my hair brush, scrunchies, ponytail holders, barrettes, etc.; must be protected due to possible scratching of the glass and/or staining of the grout.
Not recommended for foods of any kind.
To clean this bowl you can run it under warm water and wash with mild soap if necessary and gently wipe out with a damp sponge. Do NOT use harsh chemicals. Do NOT place in dishwasher or submerge in water.
This awesome bowl measures 7 inches high and about 4 inches high.

I hope you enjoyed the journey.
